Pattern Description:

This pattern was featured in the March 2014 issue of Entwine magazine. Check it out at http://www.entwinemagazine.com/.

This absolutely gorgeous Egyptian sampler afghan is my crowning design achievement. It took me almost six months (on and off) to design and make. I spent another two weeks finalizing and checking the instructions. The instructions are completely written out, so you will not have to count holes and blocks from a diagram. The border designs are authentic ancient Egyptian patterns. It will add a touch of the exotic to your bed. It is designed for a double-size bed and covers the bed completely. It is made with worsted weight yarn. It takes quite a bit of time to make, but it is well worth the effort.

Finished afghan measures about 61" wide by 77" long without the fringe.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Egyptian designs in my shop, as well as my other original crochet and knit patterns. I add new listings all of the time.
