In case you’re just joining me on the Crochet Along, Esther from It’s all in a Nutshell put together this gorgeous project and I jumped in! The squares she chose are amazing and I’m learning a ton of new techniques! If you’d like to take a look at my previous squares, click here to go back to Week one.
We are getting to the end of this Crochet Along with only nine squares to go! I’ve never taken on such an extended project. As a result, I’m giving myself a nice pat on the back for making it this far. I’m hoping to give the finished afghan as a Christmas present, but I literally finished this week’s squares this week. Because I haven’t been working ahead of my posts at all lately, this is being posted on a Friday instead of a Wednesday! In a perfect world, I’d already be adding the border to this. Ha ha, that will probably be awhile yet!
Fall Blossom – Week 9
For this week’s squares, we have a gorgeous design called Fall Blossom by Aurora Suominen. Less than other designs, it only had a few little triple trebles in there for me to keep it interesting. Probably the best part was the raised edge on the flower, this time.
After securing my ends while for the first half of the project, I started doing it the “right” way. I had washed something else where the ends had been tucked the first way and they all came out. So I decided that with as big of a project as this was, I needed to take the time and weave them in.
With all those color changes, it took about two hours to get them all secure. But at least now I know the person who will be receiving this won’t have any loose strands after washing.
I’m pretty sure this one is my favorite square entirely just because of the colors. I need a whole afghan in just these. And as someone else said a scarf, and a hat, and a ….
This one’s not bad either, some muted tones with bright accents.
And we are back to the “Candyland” colorway. I really hope the person receiving this likes things BRIGHT!
And now our favorite part:
There are so many you can’t even see them without scrolling anymore!
Fall Blossom Pattern can be found on Ravelry!
Keep creating. I know I will!
