Edie Eckman — Crochet Along With Me

Because I just can't get enough of playing with motif color and design, I asked Lion Brand Yarn if they'd let me host a Motif Afghan Crochet-Along. They were just as excited about the idea as I had hoped, so beginning tomorrow, September 17, we'll be choosing colors for our afghans.
The basis of the design is Motif #48 (above) from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs. Along the way we'll be playing with color choices and arrangements, as well as trying a few different stitching and construction techniques. At the end of the Crochet-Along, you'll have your own unique afghan that fits your dรฉcor AND your personality.

Please join me!

I'm looking into it chickenbetty...I'm wondering if the Lion Brand blog will be announcing the crochet-along tomorrow, in which case I'll add a new (and corrected) link to this post.
