Brilliantly Creative / Crafties

Camo Blocks Afghan

One fun thing I did for Christmas this year was make gifts for everyone on my list. The afghan below was commissioned by my dad and made for my niece (his granddaughter) Livie Jo. The only directions I got from him were: Livie needs a camo blanket. A big one.

I found this pattern in an old Workbasket magazine. (Mom had a bunch and I photocopied the crochet patterns to keep.) I already had the camouflage yarn and most of the black yarn. I only had to buy the green yarn and an extra skein of black.

Here’s the picture of the afghan while I was steaming it into shape:

And a picture of it on my couch:

And a closeup. The pattern was easy peasy: Double crochet and single crochet.

This is one of my first commissioned (i.e. paid) projects, and I have a few more to share. I’m working toward getting pictures of my work on Flickr and Facebook; eventually, I’d like to do an Etsy store, too. Thoughts? Brilliantly creative? Gigantic idiot?
