3 Shapes, 1 Square

I'd love to hear what you all think of this: I came up with it this morning after seeing THIS post on crochetville. It took a lot of frogging (rip it, rip it) and reworking the stitches to get the results that I wanted. I'm still not 100% happy with the results but it turned out a whole lot better then the first one I made this morning: So, what do ya'll think? Should I write up the pattern for the square at the beginning of this post? If I did I would post it here as a free pattern. Please feel free to leave a comment telling what you think of the square.

Happy Crocheting!!

"Simple and Elegant Charm" Afghan

Finally finished this afghan. Hooray!!! I started it about a year ago and for some reason quit working on it just 10 Squares and a border short of being done.

I used RH Fleck in Claret, Black and Aran. The edging is a V-St finished off with Stitch that I cannot remember the name of. The edging took about 2 hours to complete. For each little hill there is 6 sts so you can imagine how many stitches are just in the edging alone...... A LOT!!!

Oh my goodness. There were SOOOOOOO many ends to weave in. I used a tapestry needle on each end to make sure that my afghan would last forever. Can't even tell where I wove the ends in at. I'm a perfectionist in crochet and especially in the finishing of an item.

The afghan measures approx. 64" Long and 50" wide. It's so cuddly and warm. I LOVE IT!!!

I used my "Simple and Elegant Charm" Square Pattern and the Flat Braid Joining Method to join all the squares together as they were made.

Thanks for looking everybody!! Happy Crocheting!!!!
