A2 - Sea Foam - Afghan

Good Day,

The first stage of completion of our new afghan, Sea Foam is now complete.

Slowly I'm beginning to re-learn some of the basic crochet stitches. There are five stitches used in the construction of Sea Foam are Chain, Slip, Single Crochet, Double Crochet and Clusters.

The dimensions of Sea Foam are Length: 70" (177.8 cms) by Width: 52" (132.1 cms).

Our new afghan, Sea Foam, is based on and inspired by the design Clusters and Stripes by Kelly Robinson.

Sea Foam is constructed with an H/8 - 5.0 mm crochet hook. The yarns are of the Caron line and are Ocean and Off-White.

And here are some more images.

And now next to the blocking.

Sea Foam is machine washable and dryable. I don’t quite understand the icons on the Caron yarn wrapper, but I would expect that one should use a very gentle cycle on both the washer and the dryer.

Stay tuned for the next afghan, currently in progress.


Jim and Andy.

My AIP - Sea Foam - Inner Top Completed

Good Day,

Well, the inner top of our new crocheted afghan, Sea Foam has been completed.

It did take much more time than I expected to weave and secure the yarn ends back into the actual top.

The inner top of Sea Foam is now a finished 60 inches (152.4 cms) long and 48 inches (121.9 cms) wide. I have decided on a simple but complimentary 6-inch (15.2 cms) border. This should result in a near final constructed afghan with the dimensions of Length: 72" (182.9 cms) and Width: 60" (152.4 cms).

Here are some more images of the inner top of Sea Foam.

And Bella definitely wants to be a part of the picture set.
