Beautiful Stained Glass Afghan Square

Posted by on May 11, 2012 in Crochet | 9 comments

I have been so overwhelmed with half finished projects lately, that I decided my next afghan square needed to come from a pattern. I just don’t have the time to come up with my own right now. So, when I saw the “Stained Glass Afghan Square” pattern on Ravelry, I knew I just couldn’t resist. I LOVE it!!!

The hard part was picking out colors for the recipient. She requested green and/or gray but because I’m on a yarn diet, and trying sooo hard to use up my stash, my choices in these 2 colors were limited. I ended up using Red Heart Eco-Ways in “Fern” and “Lichen” for the greens. Then I picked a dark gray for the trim/outline color because I didn’t like the light gray with the greens I had on hand. The gray is Vanna’s Choice in “Charcoal Gray.”

It wasn’t finished yet, but it looks great just like this. (it was raining, so the pic is a little dark)

Almost done!

First let me say, Julie makes this pattern so easy to follow! She did a great job at making something so beautiful, easy to DIY. And, I personally think, you could really end this in a number of places for a beautiful piece. I love how mine came out, and I’ll definitely be trying it again with some other color combos. Please take some time to visit JulieAnny on Ravelry and check out her other patterns. (you can either click her name above, or click on her photo below)
