    Hi,
    I started crocheting at my grandmas knee many years ago. I abandoned it to raise a family and only played at it sometimes. About 25 or 30 years ago, I got interested again. The last few years I have learned a lot through friends and books. I have come to love it.
    I started a Prayer Shawl Ministry in my Church in March of this year. It’s doing great thanks to some lovely ladies who love to crochet and knit.
    I am looking forward to making the Sampler Afgan along with ya’ll. I like to keep several projects going at once and then I don’t get bored, and I also learn lots of new stitches.
    Good-Luck and God Bless to all my fellow Crocheters.

    Hi, I am just getting started with ravelry. I’ve been crocheting since I was 5 and I am now 58. I started on the crochet-along afghan. I think it’s going to be fun.

    Yay, I am so glad this was added. I am adding it to my blog now.

    I don’t like sewing squares together. Has anyone tried crocheting long strips of blocks? How did that work out? If the first block is one stitch more, will the next block fit?

  • Trish

    I tried crocheting two of my blocks together, but because they were not the same size(eek) that didn’t work out, I crocheted around the block and should have counted :(

    I’m very disappointed in Lion Brand!!! Everyone seems to know there is a problem with the gauge and/or hook size….can we get a correction??? Haviing a crochet along was so exciting, and now so disappointing to not be able to have a correct pattern to follow to join :(

    Zontee says: Hi Lisa, don’t forget to check out Cecily’s second post which addresses the gauge. It may be helpful to you.

    Are my calculations wrong? I need 30 blocks but am only instructed to make 10 of block one, 7 of block 2 and 10 of block 3. HELP.

    Zontee says: Hi Dedra, you may have downloaded an older version of the pattern, which has a typo. You make 10 of each.

    I have 17 blocks made! 3 weeks of working on it, I think I’ll make the 6 week challenge!

    I do a lot of crocheting, knitting, quilting, and any other craft I can get my hands on! I’m involved in the prayer shawl ministry at our church, so the sampler pattern is a wonderful pattern for laprobes for the gentlement who are recipients in our prayer shawl ministry. I am doing a lapghan four squares by four squares. I’ll probably crochet a border around it in the three colors I have chosen for the blocks (two solids and one varigated). Instead of making individual blocks, I just add on the next color to the last row of the first block and keep on crocheting. I’ll have four stips of four blocks, four rows wide. This way I’ll only have to sew three vertical seams. It’s much faster and looks just a nice.
