ribbon lapghan

Off my hook this week is a pink ribbon lapghan.

The picture does not show the color off well but the yarn is Red Heart baby pink. It's a pastel pink. 

The finished size is about 39 1/2" square. Each square is a bit over 12". I used an I hook for the body of the square and an H for the single crochet edging around each square. I left a very long tail, about 3 lengths of the square, to use for sewing the squares together. This worked out well. I sewed three across and then I used the leftover tail to sew the strips together.

The edging around the entire afghan is (sc, ch 2, 2 dc, sk 2) all the way around.

The pattern is my cancer ribbon afghan which can be found at Crochet Cabana and on Ravelry.

Happy crocheting!


  1. Right you are Sandie,it looks peachy a bit more orange then pink in the picture, but then we often mention colors not showing up correctly on blogs, no idea why. Very nice ghan, did you make it for a specific person?

    1. In this case, I think it is my camera skill. LOL The ghan was made for a local lady who has cancer.

  2. Nice that you made it for someone going through the difficulties of cancer. Hope she's doing well. The ghan will give her a lift. Making rounds today from the Bridge.
