The pattern is named, “Stitch Sampler” and it is the second one that I have made.

The first one I made was in 1993.

I, for one, am glad that it is finished.  Now, I can move on to other things.

    This is so beautiful. I have been toying with the idea of plunging into an afghan project, and the pictures of yours make me think I want to try to do one like this. I love it, and thanks for the pattern source.

    I love love love the color combo on this afghan… I hope you don’t mind but I am going to try to duplicate your colors I love it so much! what brand/type yarn did you use? and was it all the same brand? Thank you so much! Becky

      Hi Becky,
      Thank you for the nice compliment. No, I don’t mind at all. I used Red Heart Super Saver. I know it isn’t the best type of yarn to use, but when I wash it, I will wash it by itself, use a gentle cycle and air dry it.

        I have used Red Heart yarn a few times over the years and found it to be “dependable”…I wash it and dry it just like I do towels and never had any thing become “limp”. I use a regular wash with warm water and then dry on warm…no problems!

    i did the same one with more muted colors and hung it from a shelf that has a bunch of oil lamps sitting on it. i was pretty impressed with myself after i finished it because i was just learning to crochet.

      It is a good project to learn to crochet since there are so many different types of stitches. Do you have a picture of it posted anywhere?
