The Grateful Dead Afghan

My next afghan is for a friend who likes going to concerts and being a hippie and shit. Well, and shitting. I mean, not shit. Let’s not talk about shit. She like’s stuff that has to do with The Grateful Dead. So, I thought I’d make her an afghan that reminded me of the Grateful Dead. We shall see how it goes. It’s still Lion Brand Amazing Yarn, in the Strawberry Fields, Arcadia, and Wildflowers colorways. I’m hoping this square, which contains a swirl, will have a kind of organic, quasi-tie-dyed feel.

Here’s what a “square” looks like:

And the they’re supposed to be fit together, four small “squares” into a larger more square “square.”

I have my doubts, but we shall see. Also, please ignore all the dog hair. It’s been a long, strange weekend. Sometimes the light’s all shining on me. Other times I can barely see, you know, for all the dog hair.

  1. I’m starting to think I may need to block this afghan before I put it together. Not the small “squares,” which, while not square at least lie flat, but the bigger squares, which I think are going to have to pucker in the middle unless i do some kind of unusual join that accounts for their true unsquare nature.
