I'm looking for an afghan pattern my Mom used to make and I've looked all over the 'net for it. Maybe this will sound famliar to someone. It's crocheted in straight lines with a "blip" that carries into the next row. It's not a ripple pattern because there's no peaks and valleys.
I'd love to begin the new year with a stash-busting afghan and this was a pattern I always liked. I haven't crocheted in years since I took up knitting again--but, I know (and hope) that it will probably all come back to me!
Hi there I too am looking for a crochet afghan pattern that you described. A dear aunt had one in three colors cream, burgandy and pink and it was very pretty with that "blip" going down into the next color. I always admired it and thought when she no longer needed it I'd keep it. She passed in April and the afghan was thrown out. It seemed to be a very simple pattern and your "blip" description was a very good way to describe it! I'd love the pattern as well. Thanks.
This sounds like a pattern that my dear MIL did years ago and if memory serves me correctly she called it and 'Indian blanket design'. I don't have a pattern because she never used one for anything. She could look at an item and duplicate it without a pattern. She crocheted a bobble stictch poncho for me without any pattern at all long before the patterns were popular back in 1972. I'm lucky I managed to teach myself single and double crochet so far. Sue
Jints The first one, Teardrop Charity Afghan appears to be the one that I want. It will be a great winter project for me to do in memory of my Aunt Mary. Everyone is always so helpful on this forum. Thank you! JoniB
