New Skill: Crochet Afghan Repair

Crochet Afghan Repair: Before

I suspect my boss took this repair into the store, assuming I could fix it. I have been asked before to fix something and ended up re-crocheting the afghan because I could not understand how I could make the repairs, as crochet is done on completed stitches. That seems easy enough, but when I thought about the last (top) row being worked in the the stitches above, I just could not conceive any idea on how to accomplish that.

Well, money is one of my great motivators, especially because I don’t have any. Because I am fond of my bosses for giving me an opportunity for stable employment, I said I would try, but made sure, she knew I wanted premium pricing. The initial repair – the blue section – seemed easy enough and when I got to the big hole, the ease of repair continued, though presented more of a challenge in its approach.

I think we matched the color pretty closely and while I did not perform the puff stitch in the exact same manner, I am proud of my work on this afghan repair. What do you think?
