Project Title and Brief Description

Wedding Afghan

I made this afghan with Caron Simply Soft Heathers. I did use initials from Crochet at About.com by Sandi Marshall, but I designed the entire afghan.

Why Was This Your Best Project From 2010?

This labor of love was a project for my nephew and his bride as a wedding gift. The project turned out perfectly. I like that it is quite large, so soft and washable. They loved it and take turns using it in the evening while watching television.

Lessons Learned

  • I had to rip the stitches out several due to not planning appropriately before starting the finished project. Next time I will chart the entire project prior to starting.

To Kbavouset: What an impressive project! That's an amazing gift, and it sounds like your nephew and his wife are really enjoying it. It's a beautiful design, and my hat's off to you. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us.

To Everyone: You're invited to take a look at Sandi Marshall's free patterns for filet crochet letters. There are many creative ways to use them, but as you can see, they are ideal for use in wedding afghans and any project that requires personalization. We hope you'll make good use of them.
