Comfortghan made for Cindy's Mother


This is a lapghan I made for my Best Friend/Sister Cindy's Mother. She has dementia and spends most of her time in her recliner so though this would be nice to keep her warm.
I used the Cross & Diamond 12" square pattern I got from Julee from over at the ville.

Here is the pattern I used:

yarning over and bringing MC through, pull CC through and leave a 6 inch end for weaving in later
DO NOT fasten off MC. Carry in back.). (not sure why! but i did and can not tell why)
(188 Hdc, 8 Ch)
Rnd 13: Ch1, *Sc in same St as Sl St and in each Hdc to corner, Sc in 1st Ch of corner, Ch2, Sc in 2nd

yarning over and bringing CC through, pull MC through and leave a 6 inch end for weaving in later.
Fasten off CC and leave 6 inch end for weaving in later). (196 Sc, 8 Ch)
Rnd 14: Ch1, *Sc in same St as Sl St and in each Sc to corner, Sc in 1st Ch of corner, Ch2, Sc in 2nd
Ch of corner*. Repeat from * to * 4 times, Sc in last 28 Sc, Sl St in top of first sc. (204 Sc, 8 Ch)
Fasten Off. Weave in all ends.

I made mine like this other than I worked my Rnd over to the corner so you never saw the beginning of the Rnd. Does this make sense?
then to make the blanket I sewed together the 12 squares and ran a border:)

Let me know if you need any help

Hugs,
sissie

Very nice. Could you add the link for the pattern?

checking back in, concern as I haven't heard back from you that the lapghan I sent was received. Should have been some time ago.

Hope all is well
