Recipe: Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch-A Touch Me Afghan by Hooker Leo for Gilda Ongkeko
Yarn: Muench Touch Me (Fiber Content: 72% Rayon Microfiber/28% Wool; about 61 yards/50 grams; Yarn Color: 3650?; Yarn Weight: 4)
Hook: Bates US G/6 – 4 mm
Dimensions: 50 x 76 inches

I did not make this afghan. This a recipe I wrote up for Gilda Ongkeko, a yarn representative for Muench Touch Me yarn, a yarn that I think will be available for purchase at The Knitting Tree, L A.

The construction is all front loop half double crochets, so it probably could be classified as an easy/beginner recipe. I am unsure of the color pictured, and based on the sample card on the website, I am guessing the color pictured is 3650. The pattern is available for free; simply follow the link above to download a PDF document.

This yarn is a soft and plush chenille textured yarn, lending a touch of luxuriousness to your projects.

This afghan represents my acquired knowledge of how to perform entrelac crochet in the round. I found this stitch easy and fun to do, but one must keep track of one’s stitch count, as I got too comfortable twice and two of the square are actually bigger than they are supposed to be. I was not a fan of the continuous method, switching between yarns, as a ridge is created on the back side. In the future, I will just cut the yarn and sew in the ends.

The project name – Mirror In The Bathroom by The English Beat – is representative of my ska period and in honor of one of my most favorite ska bands.
