My Handmade crocheted blue throw


I am linking this post to Smiling Sally's Blue Monday.
Have I mentioned before that I love blue, white and brown. I think I have several times. This is an afghan that I crocheted in the 1970's. I had found the pattern for it from a Family Circle magazine and you had to order the pattern for it. I made me the blue and white one and a mauve and cream one for my Mother for Christmas. This was a very fun throw to make as you crocheted the strips and then sewed them together. I have been searching thru my files (which could take many months) because I would like to make one for my daughter and 2 daughter-in-laws for Christmas. By the time I find the pattern that might mean next Christmas. The way it is crocheted, it is very heavy.  I keep mine draped 
        over the bentwood rocking chair that belonged to my Grandfathers uncle.
          Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the other blue posts today at Smiling Sally's!!!

  8. Your afghan is lovely, and I'd like to make it for my daughter for her house near the ocean. Can you give me a clue as to the name of the pattern and perhaps what year it was made available so that I can look for it -- maybe on ebay? Thanks.
