Stormy's StoryThis is done on the type of material that laundry bags are made of then you just follow the pattern and tie the ends.
Am working on hand writing the pages of instructions and will attach the actual pattern soon (having trouble with scanner so will up load pattern pages then.)
large piece of the material (like laundry bags are made of with small round holes)
skeins light green
skein dark green
1You just follow the pattern weaving the yarn in and out. Then tie the edges as frindge
2General instructions NOTE: Lace consists of holes and meshes. (each solid area between the holes is a mesh)
3To prepare lace for weaving:
Trim top and bottom of afghan so it is even. Flod ends of lace back so that 420 holres and meshes are across top and 465 holes and meshes are a long side.
Stitch through mesh at edge as in fig 1 to insure holes are aligned
Afghan is made by weaving precut single strands of yarn through the holes going across the quilt in a row.
Cut yarn in 60 inch (152 cm) pieces
Cut 60 pieces of tan (Color 1)
cut 165 pieces of peach (Color 2)
cut 50 pieces of Rust (Color 3)
cut 132 pieces of lt green (Color 4)
Cut 58 pieces of dk green (color 5)
4Weaving instructions: The weaving process will draw up the lace so the finished afghan will be slightly smaller than the lace.
Tension is very important. Do not pull too tight or your afghan will not lie flat. Always hold previous stitches, the ones before the row you are on, so they can't be pulled.
5To begin the weaving:
When you can see the symbol on the graft, the yarn is on top of the lace. When you can't the yarn is underneath the lace.
