Solas Caomh

Some time ago I posted a photo of the afghan my daughter made, the Solas Caomh. It's a beautiful cable baby afghan, very complex. I'm one proud Mom that she finished this. I started one and realized I would never enjoy the work as I would have to concentrate and not be able to do anything else while I worked, so I quit. She enjoys a challenge and persevered with this gorgeous result and was even able to hold a conversation while she worked. Oh to have my young brain again!

Now that pattern is available as part of a kit - three kits actually. You can find them here at Interweave Press (Crochet Me). The entry on that page has a slightly different name - Sojas Caomh rather than Solas Caomh, but if you click on an individual kit the name is correct. Google says that Solas Caomh means "gentle light", whereas Sojas means "soybeans" and caomh is not translated with that word. Guess you can't have gentle soybeans. heh Anyway, I wrote to them but the link should work regardless if you want to purchase the kit, or go to Ravelry and buy the pattern from Jodi Euchner for $5.50 and choose your own yarns. It takes 7 skeins of Brown Sheep cotton fleece according to the entry. The kit uses a different yarn for edging, but I personally like it one color.

Happy crocheting!


  1. Gorgeous color, and believe I would have to use my row counter to remember where I was in the pattern etc. Give you daughter a big thumbs up.
