Exotic Crochet Cruisers Hook Up 25 Project Linus Afghans
In recognizing that each of us are very fortunate to be on a cruise, let alone a crochet cruise. As a person of influence, I feel it’s my personal obligation to ensure we keep a charity element to our crochet cruises.

Each crocheter was asked to bring with them a completed 3 block x 3 block square. Any colour could be used for the afghan but each square had to be finished with a black border to bring consistency to the overall afghan.
Each afghan had a stained glass window appearance. We know the conference room wasn’t brightly lit but our crocheters worked through it. Crocheters got into groups of 4 to bring their block together as 4 completed blocks equals 1 completed afghan. Crocheters had to decide between the four of them if they were to going to crochet or whip stitch the afghan blocks together.
Crocheters were pounding these off. Some crocheters brought extra individual squares plus blocks. Some of the crocheters worked throughout the week to make extra squares so that we had no left over squares in the end. One of the crocheters stayed up until 3 am as she was determined to finish her afghan before our photo shoot on the 2nd last day.
The afghans were shipped off the ship by one of the crocheters who are associated to a local Project Linus Chapter.
This photo was taken at 8 am before the mad rush of the ship’s passengers took over the ship. These people volunteered to get up early for this presentation. It took almost 90 crocheters to do their part to be part of this amazing project.
