Intro: My First Lighthouse Afghan
Hi there and thanks for taking the time to view my instructable. My name is Barbara and I have been crochetting for about ten years now. I have always loved doing this as a stress releaser (although some of my projects instill yet more stress than others) either way...I keep going for the sheer fact of making someone else happy because of my hard work.
I was asked to make a lighthouse afghan for a friend's mother a while back. I agreed but was unsure of whether or not I could accomplish it. I took on the task and am now so happy that I did.
This afghan is made with Lion Brand yarn worsted weight (although I am not to sure of the color's) I simply take the papers off and discard them for fear of hang ups later during the process (especially when you are at the last few yards of yarn). This afghan was a single picture chart dated back in the 2001. It called for Mary Maxim Worsted Weight Yarn, but I was given the material already and they were all Lion Brand skeins. It asked for size 5 and 6mm hook sizes (the smaller hook for edging). This afghan was done with a single crochet changing colors in odd numbered rows (although I may have forgotten my place a few times during the process...all and all, it was a pretty thrilling experience since I had never worked on an afghan that showed pictures of objects.
