Magnolia Afghan Reviewed by Delaine Buhrow on 2009-06-20 ****
I started out making this following the pattern but I made the flower panel long enough to fit my not so standard width bed. After about a month I grew tired of the back and forth with the double crochet sections. It seemed like I was accomplishing nothing. So I redid the flowers using a size P hook and held 2 strands together. I look at the differences in the size of my finished flowers and compare them to picture on here and I am convinced the picture blanket was made using a large hook.
So my finished project is several rows of the flower panels that I hung up behind my bed. I really like that I can see my wall color behind the afghan. I used a deep purple color and my lighter walls go nicely with it. I concur with the other people who said the open work of this wasn't good with children or animals. While I was working on this I would get caught in it too. That's why I decided to make it for a purely decorative purpose.

Firstly, the yarn I ordered was not varigated as shown in the picture, which was disappointing.

Secondly after I finished I didn't like that the upper and lower panel were going in different directions, so I ripped the top one and made it like the bottom one and it looked much better.

The center panel is open work with large spaces between petals--not good for children or animals who might get tangled. Also, the change in direction of the stitches on either side of the central panel had a different "stretch" which I couldn't make work so I just made both sides the same. The afghan is beautiful, heavy and quite large but not very practical with the open work. it was fun, though, and worked up very quickly.

This pattern is just beautiful! And it wasn't as hard to make as I thought it was going to be. It also worked up quickly. I just love it!
