Sunrise Sunset Afghan



Have you ever feel the excitement of starting a project and then half-way done you've lost your interest to finish it?! Well, I do with this afghan. I started this last February 2013! The first time I set aside this is when I ran out of yarns. But when I got the materials again for this afghan I just have too many WIP projects and set aside this again until I just totally forgot about this and used the yarns for other projects! LOL!

Victorian Lattice Afghan

free crochet pattern, Victorian Lattice Square

After more than 3 years living in Mexico, we decided to move to the US! It's been crazy months of job hunting, working in our papers and house hunting. And this is my project on those long hours of driving- Victorian Lattice Square. I love this pattern so much! The pattern is available in written & chart. It's easy to memorize, very relaxing project and the finished product definitely look elegant.

I decided to use whatever in my stash and I have tons of this partially used skeins of Caron Simply Soft. I love this yarn, it's so soft and the colors are vibrant. Hint, if you are planning to make this afghan and wondering how many skeins of yarn you needed, I found out that I can make 6 squares in each skein. Each skein of Caron Simply Soft is 315 yards or 288 meters. And I used additional 2 full skeins of white yarn for joining and edging.

I used crochet hook size G (4.00 mm) and each squares measures 7 inches but it became 8 inches after I joined the last round (white part). To join each square I did the JAYG method (Join As You Go) and you can find the video tutorial HERE. And I add reverse single crochet or also known as crab stitch for the edging.

Here's my finished afghan. Made up of 42 squares and it measures 50 x 60 inches.
