In case you missed it...
And now for the big reveal...
This is a Sweedish Weave Afghan I made for my new niece.
The pattern is called Celtic Jewel.
I used three different shades of pink.
It took me about 50 hours but it was well worth it. I really do enjoy making these.
You may be thinking...50 hours...is she crazy? Yes I may be. I really do love doing it though and I bet I will be a lot quicker now that I have the hang of the pattern.
To finish the edges just sew a small zig-zag stitch on a sewing machine down the two sides where the yarn is hanging off. Then you trim off the excess yarn. If you want a really secure finish you do a double fold hem on the two sides where the yarn was trimmed.
I just wish I could be there in person to give this gift.
