MosaicGhan


I finally finished Larry's MosaicGhan. I added a very simple double crochet edging in solid royal blue to finish it off. This was a very easy afghan to crochet. It was excellent to work on while watching TV. It's just a bunch of classic granny squares using the "join as you go" method in alternating colors of Bernat Mosaic Yarn. I used the colorways called "Spectrum" and "Ambrosia," size "H" crochet hook. This yarn is great. It’s washable acrylic, but has a very rich look to it. The striping colors have long runs, similar to Noro. Both colorways have lots of blue, giving this ‘ghan a very watery, shimmering look.
Too bad I didn't finish this during the winter. It's perfect for a couch throw.

Very nice. Using the different sized squares give it a special pizzazz.

It's beautiful Ellen! I really like the different-sized squares - I will have to try that next time I make a granny-square afghan. Lucky Larry! :)

Absolutely fantastic, I will have to purchase some of this Bernat Mosaic the next time that I am in LA (I thought that Bernat was French, but it is not and it is impossible to find this wool in Europe!).

You will enjoy this beautiful afghan forever (winter or not!). Love, love, love the colors.

I'm more of a knitter than a crocheter, but I started hooking in earnest a few months ago so I could participate in some potholder swaps. Now I have the urge to make an afghan. (I'm hoping it passes!) I really like the yarn you chose---a good way to get allot of colors without messing with a bunch of ends. The afghan is lovely and inspiring, as is your blog. I may be retiring soon, and am thinking about starting my own blog---there is more history and *stuff* in my little Iowa town than a person would think.
