Not so little anymore...


My doll-sized afghan is growing! The thing is, I'm not sure how big I should make it. Right now I'm in the middle of the last pink row and don't know if I should do one more olive and brown section. I also think it would look cute with a scalloped crocheted edge. Now I just have to figure out how to do that. :)

  1. Scalloped edges are super easy, just as easy as straight crocheting. All you do is single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet twice, double crochet, single crochet, slipstitch. Does that make sense? so they're just rising and falling again in height. Easyyyy.

  2. The colour combo you chose is perfect, I really love it. It doesn't matter at all that you couldn't find any matching aqua yarn as its turned out beautiful and it will finish it lovely with a scalloped edge.

  3. Oh wow I love those colors together! I also like how you used something with only a few squares in the middle and then lots of edges, because I like to make the squares but I HATE sewing them together, so that would be a great alternative!
    I used a scalloped edge on a crocheted baby blanket once, and it was really fast and easy, and I think it totally made the blanket. Go for it!

  4. Awesome! It's huge! That really looks lovely. You are ingenious to do that with a thrift store find.

  6. I think as far as picking a size you need to think of what you want to do with it. Do you want it to cover a bed? or do you want to use it just as a blanket to cover yourself? :)

    It looks beautiful! and remember when you said you couldn't crochet? :)

    *hugs!* I miss ya!

  13. Love it..I would not end it with pink unless you want that to be the predominate color. I think you are on the right track with the green. Well done ;-)

  21. I personally think you should add a thin trim in that aqua color, and that should finish it off :)
    Looks good either way though!! Make me one too... Please... :P

  22. Very pretty colors, it's just beautiful!

  23. Thanks, everyone!

    Tali, I definitely would have added more of the aqua color if I could find any but it's tooooo vintage and doesn't exist!

  24. I think it looks great! A scalloped edge would make it sublime! Reminds me of an afghan my great aunt made:)

  27. You've done a gorgeous job on this afghan!!
    I would definitely end with brown scallops- it's the color the afghan was started with and a scalloped edge adds a bit of femininity and is super easy to do (as This Girl outlined in her comment)! You can do it!! :D
