The rest of the pink squares…

2 Mar

…from Peeper’s little afghan.

First off…why I made a small afghan, which can also be called a lapghan:
1 – small afghans work better for people with limited mobility that are upright in beds and chairs because they won’t get all twisted up in it
2 – big enough to cover one’s lap but won’t get caught up in the wheels of a wheelchair

Secondly….why use acrylic?
1 – no special laundry care
2 – no wool allergies to worry about
3 – it is cheaper….unfortunately, things tend to ‘walk’ in long-term care homes
4 – not everybody likes wool and I, personally, find cotton too much strain on the wrists for anything bigger than a dishcloth

Catalina Square by Julie Yeager

 

This particular pattern from Julie is free.  Her patterns have much eye appeal with varying degrees of difficulty.  See the treble clusters in the corners of the peach and light pink rounds…I love those!

The Longing Light of Evening by Shan Sevcik

 

This one is not free, but can be purchased through her Ravelry store individually or as part of a small eBook.  Shan is a new designer to me and I have really enjoyed this pattern and the previously posted Frostbloom.

 

And finally this little lovely….

    Very pretty. Are/were you putting these together for an afghan?
