Here is another afghan I crocheted, but this one is Not A Baby Size. I made this one for a local theater set. For a play that I was in! The play was The Miracle Worker and I was the maid. A small part, but a fun one.
Here is a photo of the afghan, playing its part. It is on a roll-away bed that is being used in the garden house of Helen Keller's home.
I created this afghan by crocheting several squares and rectangles. They were all the same width, but varied in length. I crocheted and I crocheted and I crochet and I crocheted. Random sizes. I didn't stop to see how many more I needed to do. So in the end I had more than I needed!
Then I played around with arranging them on the floor. I had to decide how I was going to put them together.
When I had them arranged the way I wanted them, I found that some rectangles needed to be shortened to make even edges on the afghan. Here I am sitting on the floor, unraveling rows until the rectangle was the right size.
I found that those little red Wonder clips worked wonderfully to hold the pieces together as I joined the rectangles. Pins sure would not have worked! The clips did a great job.
