This is an afghan I have made for my father as a Christmas gift. I followed a Red Heart pattern for the nosegay square blocks. Finding the original pattern somewhat too feminine for my father, I decided to use four colors and to omit the fringe.
Each square features a little bouquet. You will notice that each nosegay is different from the others. It just happened, without me even knowing it. You may have experienced the same while following a pattern…
I tied the stems with a simple chain.
I assembled the squares with a red stripe.
I made a border of stripes with the left over yarn.
The whole afghan was crocheted with Phildar Lambswool (49% acrylic, 51% lamb wool) and a 5 mm hook. This yarn is a pleasure to work with, let me tell you! (Unfortunately, dark grey days followed other dark grey days, which made it difficult for me to take beautiful pictures of the afghan. The colors in them are the real colors of the yarn, though.) Thank you for visiting and Happy New Year!
