Be Still My Beating Heart

The Name

Be Still My Beating Heart by Sting

This was originally named The Bottom Line – a random selection from my music library – but at the last minute, influenced by the stitch design, I switched.

The Afghan

Dimensions: 39 x 21 inches

The Yarn

Newton’s Yarn Country Brushed Acrylic

Color: Pearl Green*
Content: Man-made fiber, per burn test

Color: Blue Baker’s Twine*
Content: Man-made, per burn test

The weights of both yarns are estimated. Finally dug the rest of this stuff out from my stash. I had used it previously on Summertime Blues.

Hooker Notes

I saw an cable accent on The Crochet Crowd Cable Bag that I wanted to incorporate, but could not figure it out. My accent is deeper and perhaps, even more involved. Still after working on different variations over 24 hours, I am happy and on my way to completing it.

Looks like I only got half an afghan from my leftovers. I would add different yarns just to get a full size – per my standards, but that never goes well. I figure end it now. It could be used as a lapghan for some old man/woman.

I notice again – on a rectangular piece that my tension tightens as I near the end. I attribute this to being over cautious against to tight a foundation chain, and then continuing with loose tension until I am on automatic.
