September Morning CAL

By Julie Yeager

Week Two

If you would like to order the prepared yarn packs for the design, they are still available in my Deramores store.  Delivery to the U.S. is about a week to 10 days.  The Ravelry version of the complete pattern is available at new low price of $4.99 in my Ravelry Store.  I am making small changes to the wording and will update the pattern at the end of the CAL, but the current pattern is perfectly fine and has 100 finished examples on Rav.

This week we square up the Bobble Ring circles, and add three rounds of textured border.

Pattern is written in U.S. terms.

–  Ch-3 and ch-4 at beginning of round/row will count as dc/tr throughout.

–  Magic Ring, invisible joins, air crochet, and other matters of technique are “crocheter’s choice.”

–  All rounds/rows will be worked on the right side (RS) except for two border rounds which are indicated as wrong side (WS.)

Abbreviations:

Beg – beginning          Ch – chain       Dc – double crochet                Hdc – half-double crochet  RS – right side                        Sc – single crochet                  Sl – slip           Sp – space                             St – stitch                 Tr – treble stitch           WS – wrong side

September Morning CAL – Week One

*Note:  Subscribe to my blog – lower right side of the page – for email notices of new posts.  Sales and surprises posted here first!

September Morning CAL

Week One

Welcome to our Crochet-a-Long to September Morning Afghan.  The pattern will be offered here on the blog at no charge over the next six weeks and will remain posted free for at least a year.  Please print out with the print-friendly button if you wish to save the pattern.  The pattern is available in my Ravelry Store at new low price of $4.99 if you wish to purchase and keep in your Ravelry library.

This afghan was formerly presented as a Mystery Afghan in 2012.  I have adjusted color placement a little and clarified wording to be more in style with my current patterns but the old pattern is perfectly fine and has one hundred finished objects posted on Ravelry if you would like to see inspiration.

The afghan consists of three separate motifs – extra large granny squares – and you will be making six squares if using aran weight yarn and nine squares if using dk weight yarn.  Each motif is bordered with the same three rounds and a simple join and border finishes your afghan with ease.  In aran weight yarn, the finished afghan is about 50″ x 72″, and in dk weight yarn the size is about 56″ x 56″.

If you would like to order the prepared yarn packs for the design, they are still available in my Deramores store.  Delivery to the U.S. is about a week to 10 days.
