"Simple and Elegant Charm" Afghan

Finally finished this afghan. Hooray!!! I started it about a year ago and for some reason quit working on it just 10 Squares and a border short of being done.

I used RH Fleck in Claret, Black and Aran. The edging is a V-St finished off with Stitch that I cannot remember the name of. The edging took about 2 hours to complete. For each little hill there is 6 sts so you can imagine how many stitches are just in the edging alone...... A LOT!!!

Oh my goodness. There were SOOOOOOO many ends to weave in. I used a tapestry needle on each end to make sure that my afghan would last forever. Can't even tell where I wove the ends in at. I'm a perfectionist in crochet and especially in the finishing of an item.

The afghan measures approx. 64" Long and 50" wide. It's so cuddly and warm. I LOVE IT!!!

I used my "Simple and Elegant Charm" Square Pattern and the Flat Braid Joining Method to join all the squares together as they were made.

Thanks for looking everybody!! Happy Crocheting!!!!
