My scanning/editing can use some work but thought I would share anyway.

If anyone crochets I have posted a picture (unknown afghan) of an afghan my
Mom did. I would like to to find this pattern but don't know the name of
it. Would appreciate it if someone could help me out. Thanks

Ann


Wow!! I like both those quilts! But that Bargello is absolutely
stunning!!
I crochet, but don't know the name of the afghan pattern OTTOMH. I'll
try to look in my books and see if I see it.

That's exactly what it looks like to me; my grandmother did one of those
for each of her grandchildren. Unfortunately I don't have the pattern,
but I bet a google search on "crochet," "afghan," and "daisy" would
produce results.

What do the rest of you think?

I have a pattern for it...just wanted to make sure I'd be posting the right
one!

Daisy Stitch (half daisy stitch can be achieved by working on one side only)

chain an uneven number of stitches.
1st row: sk 1st chain. draw one loop through each of the next 4 sts, YO
and draw through all 5 loops. Ch 1, draw 1 loop through the center of the
group just made.

2nd row: Ch 3, sk 1st chain, draw 1 loop through each of the next 2 sts and
1 loop through each of the first 2 horizontal stitches of the previous row,
YO and draw through 5 loops. Ch 1 and continue as with the first row.

The instructions are from a pretty old book, so I updated some of the
language. I made a scarf out of this stitch before, and it's not nearly as
intimidating as the instructions make it seem.

Ann in rctq... hope this helps you regarding the afghan picture you
posted. As I said... this group is so helpful... the same as quilters
I've known on-line and IRL (in real life).
