Stadium Robe—Finally DONE

Posted on May 11, 2010. Filed under: Crochet | Tags: , , |

Well, it isn’t perfect (don’t like how the edging on the ends “ruffle”) but you can’t have everything.  I did a decrease row around it which helped somewhat.  This is an old Columbia Minerva pattern, #783-3, no longer published.  You could check on it on EBay; not sure where else it might turn up.

Jacob’s Ladder (crocheted afghan)

Posted on July 12, 2008. Filed under: Crochet | Tags: , , , , , |

Is where the free pattern for this afghan can be found.  She also has a round version on her site, that will probably be my next afghan “in the series” of ones I am crocheting for the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA, chapter I belong to in Oakland, CA, Men Who Crochet. 

CGOA, as I probably failed to explain in my prior, crochet related posts here, is a non profit organization devoted to “spreading the gospel” of crochet; it promotes the teaching of crochet skills, showing off of designer talents, they have an annual conference (usually held in New Hampshire these days, GRRR it is too far for me to go :(((  I DID attend a Chain Link when it was held in Bellevue, WA in the summer of 1999 (as it was then called, now they call it the Knit and Crochet Show or some such title.  Chain Link was last on the West Coast in Sacramento, the closest it ever was to me.  I couldn’t afford it so I didn’t go).  The annual conference has classes, a vendor marketplace, a special dinner and awards kind of show and other activities focused on crochet.

Well, let’s get back on track (on topic) here:)  For those of you who viewed my prior posts here on the Polish Star afghan, Jacobs Ladder is merely a simpler version, the loops are laced straight up and down in vertical rows rather than laced all “criss cross” like the Polish Star was.  It is about 2 feet wide now, by about 4 feet long.

Complexitywise, it… isn’t complex at all.  Groups of 10 double crochet, separated by 10 chains.  Pics are below:
