There will be two ways suggested for the shape of the afghan. One way takes 50 motifs, the other takes 52 motifs. The more colours you use, the more unique each ornament can look like. You are the creator of your ornament afghan.
We will have 3 random giveaways for those who complete this afghan. I’m giving you until New Years Day to finish. I know you have a lot of stitching to do. So I’m giving plenty of time and besides, if you don’t finish before then, you will have it finished in time for next year. *Gulp… maybe!*

Timing Per Motif
In the effort of designing and understanding timing. I have timed the average for each round to put in perspective. Rounded up to the nearly full or half minute. Once I understood the pattern and was about 5 motifs in, I would take a timing to be accurate.
- Rnd 1 = 2 minutes
- Rnd 2 = 4.5 minutes
- Rnd 3 = 3 minutes
- Rnd 4 = 3 minutes
- Rnd 5 = 3 minutes

- Rnd 9 = 4 minutes
- Rnd 10 Attaching = 4.5 minutes each. Final attaching takes about 3 – 3.5 hours to attach all motifs together using 50 motifs.
