Pam's Western Afghan

I finally finished joining the squares from the Play Misty For Me swap. I think this swap was in 2009....oh, my. Glad I finally finished it!

The squares made and sent were all in the Misty group of colors in Vanna's Choice. I chose only 3 colors (not unusual for me) in what I thought would look more western - and asked for that type of square .... Indian-ish. I think I was lucky to get the most beautiful squares "evah"!

I finished the border of the afghan with the stitch I mentioned in the previous post - but did not name - that was used in Edie Eckman's books. It is called the Tower Stitch that some person she knew started using and named it such. I really like the way it compliments the afghan without making it girlie (will be shared by Pam's hubby) like an ordinary granny border as it turn sideways a bit. 

Can you see the resemblance to the Rick Rack Stitch?

I'm very excited to see how they like it! Nice to start the new year with something finished so nicely.



May your blessings be many, and your troubles be few - and may only good things happen for you.


  1. And I do hope I am in heaven a half hour before the devil knows I'm dead . . . . to finish your blessing the way I was taught :0}

    This afghan really did turn out nice in your color choices.

  2. That's gorgeous! I love the colors, it looks really fabulous.

  3. can you share the source of the kokopeli square? this is an outstanding afghan - altho' i hate joining squares. you did a great job tying colors together.

  4. This afghan deserves a special spot in a magazine!

    Wishing you all the best in the year ahead.

  5. The Kokopeli square was knitted by someone in CA. I can't remember her telling me where she found the pattern, BUT I wrote and asked her. If she tells me, then I'll be happy to tell you!
