Afghan and One More Hat

I wanted to share another hat that I made using my Knifty Knitter. This one is the blue with furry black brim.

I have some more of this yarn and I'll be making some more of these hats in adult and children's sizes. I'm going to put them in my Etsy shop at some point very soon.

I've also been working on an afghan to put across the back of my sofa. I finished it about a week ago.

I have to give my piano teacher credit for this pattern. When I was at her house taking my lesson one day, she showed me some squares that she was working on for a small afghan. I thought it was so pretty I decided to make one too. We used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton yarn in Ivory. I can't remember the size of the crochet hook, but whatever size is on the yarn label is what I used. To make one square, you chain 25, then single crochet in the second chain from the hook, and in each chain across. At the end of the row, turn, ch 1 and repeat the first row. Just keep crocheting rows until you have a square. Then we decided to put some of our tatted medallions in the middle of each square. It was a fun project and to tell the truth, I'm surprised I actually finished this. I so often start a project and then, for whatever reason, lose interest and put it down for awhile.

Right now I'm working on knitting a child's sweater. I got the pattern from the inside label of the yarn I used to make the afghan. I'll try to take some pictures of it and post them soon.

Hi Sharon! Your afghan is really pretty! I can tell that took some time to complete. Thanks for the easy instructions. The medallions are a pretty and dainty addition too. They remind me a little of yo yos.

You're so creative!
