Testing for my 2012 NC State Fair Afghan Project
After giving myself some time to get over not finishing my last monster afghan for the fair I have started working on an idea I came up with for next years competition. I saw a picture of a quilt done in the fence rail pattern I really liked and decided to try crocheting something similar. The quilt has rough edges where the blocks are attached together so I am making a single crochet edging around each rectangle that will stand up to imitate the rough edge. There will be 40 rectangles in the afghan so I will pick 20 colors to used for this project. Nothing like getting to go yarn shopping! I am thinking of using 5 varigated and 15 solids. I have not decided on a color scheme yet. Here are some pictures of the test rectangles I have made. I am going to go with the second one done in single crochet.
First test - done in the Trish Stitch
Second test - done in single crochet
