Growing up, fall was always my favorite season of the year. It was the season to finish up the work in the fields and return back to school. For me it meant rest and relaxation. Not sure if that is why, but I’d say that fall has the most beautiful colors of all the seasons. Yes, summer and spring have some bright and beautiful colors, but in my eyes they cannot compete with the beauty you see in the fall.

  1. This pattern looks neat! I am looking to make my first afghan, and this is a good contender, since I enjoy HDC and it shouldn’t be possible to lose my place in the pattern (which I’m concerned about on a blanket-sized scale). Would you consider putting it up on Ravelry so I could track it there?

  2. I love your blanket so much I decided to try your pattern, it’s fun to work and easy enough, just wondering how long you left your ends of the colors that have to be cut off? Do I leave them just long enough to work in later or work over later or shorter?

    1. Hi Chris, I usually leave about 3-4″ and I crochet over the ends whenever possible. I crochet over them about halfways, and then I go in with a needle later and weave them in the reverse direction so they won’t come out in the wash. Since I don’t leave much length I insert my needle first, thread it, and weave it through. But you can always leave a longer piece of yarn to make it easier on you. Hope that helps. :)

  3. Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc in first st), *sk next st, hdc in next st, hdc in skipped st

    I’m confused … did you mean to say hdc in skipped stitch? what skipped stitch? The first row is basic foundation row … if I’m reading the pattern correctly. I’m wanting to try some new patterns and this looked do-able for my limited experience, but I want to make sure I’m reading the pattern correctly.
