When a dear, designer friend told us thatshe was fighting breast cancer, we wanted
to let her know that we were thinking of
her during this challenging time. We created
this crocheted afghan using the colors
she loves: grays and silver, and pink
which represents her fight with breast cancer.
We also incorporated her favorite
stitch design, namely cables, for each
square representing our love, prayers, and
thoughts. We knew each time she
wrapped this afghan around her, she
would be reminded of our added strength,
helping and comforting her as she made
her way through this difficult journey.
You, too, can also help someone you know
who is going through a difficult time. Crochet
this afghan using the colors in this
sample, or change them for your recipient.
Work each square as given, placing them
according to the schematic, or crochet
only those squares you want to, and
arrange them how you want. You can even
crochet just one of the squares, 30 times.
Your gift, however you make it, will be
greatly appreciated and loved, and will
give comfort, warmth and love when
