Ooooh I tried that pattern out once when I didn't know as much about knitting that I do now. That would definitely be interesting to try again now that I know more! It's very pretty.

Thanks! Sherl, it'll probably be a few weeks before it's done. The squares take me a day to make each, and I still have 9 more to make then have to do the edging and fringe.

This is truly a work of art! A family heirloom! I love the deep rich color you used as well. It's the best afghan out of all the Rav afghans I saw for this!

So each 4-square motif is worked individually and then seamed together?
If so, what seaming are you using? Crochet? Whip stitch?

Whatever you're doing, it looks fantastic!

Thank you!! Yes, you work each square individually and then sew them together. I'm not really sure what seaming method I'm using on it to be honest, I'm just sewing them lol. I'll have to look it up to see if I can find a name for it.

Hmmm, I can't seem to find what it's called. But all I do is hold the pieces together, both with the wrong side facing out, and pull the needle through back and forth. It takes forever, and I hate doing it, but I'm glad you think I'm doing a good job at it lol!!
