This post will serve double...er...triple...duty since the couple of rows I've added don't warrant an update!
I'm just getting into A Patchwork Planet by Anne Tyler, a favorite author. I've finally settled on this pattern for DGD's throw in the colors she likes. This thing has been reinvented three times to get to this point where I am enjoying the colors and the stitches.
This simple, quickie stitch combination is all over the blogs and perfectly suits the "swirly colors" that DGD specified for this throw. It involves WW and lace weight yarns with size G and H crochet hooks. I'm crocheting a row of sc and ch2 after each row. There is a row of white two rows of color, then white, and repeat in dc clusters of three. The pink yarn has a silver lurex fiber through it that is a happy, sparkly touch for a seven-year-old!
