I started the red, white, blue and tan afghan for another brother yesterday. It is almost the same as the one for my dad, but with different colors (duh!) and a slightly different arrangement, and then there are the rows that are crocheted into the back loops only. So I guess it is different enough. When you really think about knitting and crocheting being just 2 or ? stitches used in different arrangements, everything is similar, right?
Here is a close-up of Dad’s:
And a scan of brother’s:
The yarn for this one is TLC Cotton Plus, a nice cabled 51% cotton / 49% acrylic. With the parts where I am to crochet into the back loops only, and the heft of the yarn, it is very drapey. I haven’t decided if I like that part, but I am far enough along now that it is what it is.
I am trying to pace myself on this one, hence this post to keep me from working on it too long. You know how working with cotton yarn is, even with a blend it is kind of hard going at times.
