Many years ago I was friends with a most wonderful woman named Edna who was in her 80's. She loved to sew and crochet even though she had glaucoma. She passed on the pattern I used to make this afghan. I imagine she got it from another source but I am not sure as it was back in the 1980's. The one I have is handwritten by her and I treasure seeing her handwriting. The name on the handwritten copy is Navajo Afghan.
I made it longer since Joel is 6' tall and wider than the pattern called for. I personally prefer wider than narrower afghans....The size came out perfect for him to use.
I usually do most crocheting in the evenings while watching television and have really enjoyed making this afghan. I gave it "finally finished" to my son today and he was thrilled.
The afghan is folded in half for the photo.
The fringe which represents the beginning and ending of each row is cut to be 4" long.
