Firecracker Throw

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Firecracker Throw Link to website or photo www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/WR1922.pdf What are you most proud of? Being able to work on it while attending meetings. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's a great take-along project. Enjoy it. It works up in three sections, so it's easy to handle. But I finished the third section well after the first two and my tension/gauge was not the same. I had to stretch it a little to sew the pieces together.

What you will need

  • Red Heart Super Saver knitting worsted. I think the colours are Dark Sage
  • Frosty Green and Aspen Print.

Q&A with Purple Cat

patz in suffolk asked:
Oh - wow! That looks so cosy and cuddly! How I wish I could crochet with a straight edge - all my crocheting has to go round in circles or squares! Ah, well - we can't all be perfect!
Purple Cat answered:
LOL! Thanks, but none of us is perfect. If you read my advice section, you saw that it's crocheted in three sections and my tension was different in the third section, so I had to stretch it when I sewed the sections. And yes, it is easier to crochet in circles or squares. If we lived near each other, I would volunteer to help you learn to crochet in lines. I remember how challenging I found "turning' when I first started crocheting. I just wasn't getting it right. Anyway, I do have a beautiful afghan pattern (Cathedral Rose Window, or something like that) that is one huge circle. Not sure when I'll get that one done. It's a huge project (78" diameter) and I've got a zillion other projects on the go.
