Tying Up Loose Ends

Dec 31, 2009



The Marcy version of the Moorish Mosaic Afghan from the Interweave Crochet Fall 2009 issue is done!
I changed up the colors a bit, as you can see. I also left off the triangular motifs, and let the edges follow the shape of the motifs.

I finished it off with an edge of purple single crochet.

There may be one or two unwoven ends on the back. I won't tell.

I kind of want to make another one.


(I know a few of you have finished your afghans. I can't wait to see them!)

I LOVE it! The colors that you chose, are perfect...I wish I had the patience, you've given me the inspiration, I needed. I've been following your progress and it really didn't take that long, for you to make it.
Give yourself 2 thumbs up! ;>

Oh my gosh!!! That is amazing! Wonderful job. I've been silently following this. I'm terribly envious of this afghan. Some day when I'm feeling brave I'll start my own.

Thanks for sharing!

I love this! My sister-in-law gave me a subscription to Interweave Crochet and I was pouring over the spring issue and I was trying to figure out if you could leave off the triangles and there you have done it!!!

Looks fantastic! I aspire to be as skilled as you are!

Oh! Your motifs are gorgeous! I love the plant-dyed fibers! Will you add motifs to make it larger or make it as is & have a smaller throw?

Can someone tell me how to get the issue this pattern was printed in or send me the pattern. Thank you, Jo

A man is like a fine wine. He starts out raw as grapes and it's a woman's job to stomp on him and keep him in the dark until he matures into something she'd like to have dinner with.
