Under The Sea: Off The Hook

Under The Sea

The Name

Under The Sea composed by Alan Menken from The Little Mermaid

The blue and the pattern of the crochet square motifs led me to thinking of the sea, ocean, water. Additionally, the square motif pattern reminds me of a coral bed.

The Afghan

On The Hook: April 28-June 16, 2019

Dimensions: 82 inches x 66 inches

Square Motif Pattern: modified Harlequin Shells 12″ Crochet Square by Carolyn Christmas

Hook Size: US H/8

Requested by my dear friend Tania. I had made her one perviously: Pussy Pink Afghan. This one is even bigger, as she wanted one to cover her head and feet. I am just in love with this afghan and the way it came out. And just like Pussy Pink, I made a boo-boo on Under The Sea also. Read more in the yarn section.

The list of yarns above is only a partial inclusion. There were many blue, worsted weight scraps that did not come with a label, but are contained within the afghan.

Unfortunately, while creating this blog post, I discovered two all-wool yarns. I will have to inform the recipient that she should refrain from washing in a machine.

I just need to do a once over to make sure I have no loose ends. Tomorrow I will wash it and then it’s ready for pick up.
