Green/orange/black zigzag done!




I finished my son's bright + black afghan a couple of weeks ago, and finally got around to taking a picture of it to post here. My son likes it, and it's just the right size for his twin bed. I loved working on this, and I even learned a new crochet stitch, reverse slipstitch, which I used on the second row of the edging. Now I'm going to plan a ripple in more subdued colors for the den. I'm getting lots of good ideas and inspiration from this site. Go ripplers!

This ripple has a lot of graphic sizzle -- congratulations!

It looks a littel bit Halloween-y too! But I love the colors, and the zig-zag pattern. Really beautiful.

WOW! Never thought I'd love this as much as I do. And I mean that in a really good way. BTW, congrats on being the 1000th post.

Wow!!! That is totally gorgeous1
Great work!
So unique! I am sure you will have lots of comments on this one from your friends and family. Be prepared to start another one or even better - teach someone how to make their own.

Wow, I would love someday to be able to do even as much as a postage stamp size of something so creative. Very, very nice!

Thanks for all the comments! I adapted a pattern from a book entitled 40 Fabulous Afghans. I've returned it to the library, and I don't remember the author's name. The pattern is a single crochet mesh (sc, ch 1, etc., then on the next row sc into the ch spaces), which makes a lighter, drapier fabric than all sc would. I'm still pondering my next project--maybe a scrap afghan to de-clutter the yarn basket.
