Where do I find out how to read the instructions - I've figured out dc (double chain) and some of the others but is there a reference doc? Nevermind - found it on Google - DUH.
Sep 12, 2014
DC isn't double chain, it's double crochet. Google the terms you don't understand or search youtube.

This is one of the easiest and the prettiest aftgans I have done. It was easy as you only had to make one block at a time. I put a ruffly edging on it.....and it is just a delicate looking aftgan.

How do you sew them together. Doesn't show to sew the Motifs together. I love to make this.

You join them by holding each one wrong side to wrong side and just do a single crochet stictch. I enlarged the photo of the aftgan and that is what they did. The used pink. I made another in pastel colors and white and it is suitable for a boy

I think this is such a soft and light looking afghan. It does not appear to be heavy and I can see the subtle colors fitting in anywhere in the house. Lovely pattern.

This is so pretty. I'd like to make one for each of my three children in different colors to match their personalities. Thanks for posting.

The diagram is just showing you the placement of the motifs. It doesn't show you how the sew them together. Good point. They should show how to attach each motif.
