Work in progress



This is the new afghan I'm making. I have finished with the white and am working on the light pink. As you can see by the granny square next to it, there are 3 other, darker, pinks that I will also do 'blocks' of. This is for my daughter, she claimed it. It's very easy too. I love it. Takes a lot of yarn though. I'm posting the pattern from husbands aunt as well just in case someone else thinks it's perfect for them too.

Shell Afghan

Chain 180

Row 1....Turn: do 2 db in 3rd st., =1/2 shell

Skip 2 sts & sc in next st

Skip 2 sts & in next st do 3 db, chain 1 & do 3 more db in same st ...= shell

Repeat above, across, ending with sc.

Row 2....Turn: chain 3, do 2 db in 1st st

Sc in back loop of chain in center of shell

Make shell in back of loop of next sc. Repeat across

DO NOT REPEAT ROW 1 AT ANY TIME. REPEAT ROW 2 EVERY TIME.

..................I love it.............
