This past week when other things have not had a claim on my attention, I have worked diligently to finish the textured squares afghan I began in mid-December.
When I last wrote about this project, it was Super Bowl Sunday. I had finished joining 32 small textured squares into the eight two-by-two arrays that form the center of the medium squares. One of the squares had the six rounds that form the border done, but the seven others awaited completion.
Here is a view of those medium squares before the border around the central square was completed next to the four large squares that were already joined:
Here are the same eight medium squares after all of the borders were completed next to the four large squares that had already been joined:
With all of the remaining medium squares finished, I then arranged them into two two-by-two arrays that formed the large textured squares:
and with the right sides together, I worked a single crochet stitch through both loops of both squares being joined:
Using the same joining method just described, I then joined the two new large squares to each other, and then to the four squares already completed:
I then added an additional six rounds to border the project. Here is how the front looks:
here is a detail of the front:
and here is the back:
I never know where a crochet adventure is going to lead me, and while I have completed this afghan, the adventure itself is never ending.
