I chose a pattern from the leaflet 48-Hour Afghans 48-Hour Afghans. Since Homespun yarn frays easily, fringe isn't a good choice for afghans crochetd with this soft yarn. For this afghan's border edges, I decided to crochet two rows of single crochets and then add 16 chain stitches into each single crochet. Thus, a fringe-look was achieved without fraying the yarn.

The Homespun yarn color is covered bridge. White yarn is spun throughout the pink-red colored yarn.
This is gorgeous! I would also love to have a copy of your pattern please. Thank you! mari916@gmail.com
Beautiful! I would love a copy of your pattern, if I could. Thank you! <br>bowandjenn@verizon.net
I am learning how to crochet and would love this pattern to make one for my husband. <a href="mailto:pmaltman@tt.com" rel="nofollow">pmaltman@tt.com</a>&nbsp;I&nbsp;want to use it with&nbsp;homespun fiesta yarn and think this would go great with it.
Love this afghan. Would love to have the pattern. gonzalesdc@gmail.com
I fell in love with this beautiful piece of work and I would love the pattern and also what size hook did you use? I love Homespun Yarn and really hate to use worsted weight. In a Leisure art book I found one that I liked but the book was too expensive. Yours would work much better for my granddaughter for Christmas! Thank you.
this is so pretty I would love to have the pattern. geonsangel@aol.com

Gorgeous color and beautiful workmanship. It fairly glows in the snowy setting!
Looks very pretty and cozy!
I have also found that Homespun fringes fray easily and had given up making the fringes on garments knitted in this. Your tip on how to make a "fake" fringe is great. Although not a great crochetter, I can just about manage the chains that you mentioned. Thanks for a very good idea.
Looks cozy. How do you wear it? I don't really know what a 'Covered Bridge' is.
It is an afghan. The Homespun yarn color is covered bridge.
Great job, looks great on that chair! The color was a great choice. And the background is nice, I love snow. :-)
