    Enjoying all the motif work by others but I have never been a fan of doing them myself so I can appreciate all the efforts. Was excited to try the C2C finally for a friends new grandbaby with yarn given to me as a retirement gift? working on pic skills for my efforts wish I could share? How do I upload?

    I will download the instructions as soon as I get home from my trip. Am not good at putting a lot of colors together but will try. Is there a web site that could help me with colors? Thank you for the pattern. Jean

    There are a lot of mistakes and bad punctuation in the ebook. I feel sorry for any beginners attempting this project. When you are a beginner, if something is confusing in the pattern you tend to assume that the pattern must be right and you lack the experience to figure out what is incorrect or unclear. I do like the motifs and am doing mine in purple, lavender, light green and pink. There are too many color changes for me, which I find tedious and if I make these patterns again I will use variegated yarn. I didn’t like the idea of leaving the last round undone to join as you go at the end; it just bugged me, so I am going to sew mine together at the end. I don’t mind sewing. Thanks for all the work to put this project together, I think it will be very striking.

      I’m fairly new at following patterns I thought it was well put together, if I ran into a spot I didn’t understand or wasn’t sure about I went to the video. Worked perfectly for me!!! Thank you for the fun project!

    This afghan is working up so fast! I just started Thursday and already have ALL the pieces done except for the joining round. I may have to make several in different colors for Christmas gifts. Thanks so much for all your hard work Mikey. My grandmother taught me how to make granny squares 50+ years ago. The rest of what I know is self taught, trial and error, etc. And then I found the Crochet Crowd. Keep up the challenges, I’m always up for new stitches and techniques!

    This is it! I am not making the afghan, but using the patterns for two window curtains. This has been on the burner, now with your tutorials I will get ‘er done. My biggest problem as always picking the colors.

      This is what I am going to do with it! I saw a kitchen window curtain like this about a year ago and have wanted to do it ever since. Are you using worsted or cotton for yours?

    Micky, I am anxious to start this afghan. It looks beautiful. would like to make some for Christmas gifts. Who could refuse a gift like that? I will have to order my yarn from Inspiration. I did the last one and everybody just loves it. It took a while to make it. But I stuck to it. I am new to the computer (89 years old) and didn’t know how to load it. haha.

      Brilliant, Filomena. Well done for getting to grips with technology so you can engage with all the good crochet stuff on here. I keep dipping in (from the other side of the pond) but will definitely get this one made. In fact, I’m hoping my Women’s Institute crochet group, here in the UK, will make a joint effort and auction it off for charity.
