I love crocheting afghans in strips because they are not as bundlesome to carry with me when I have appointments (doctorís office, etc.) In taking an afghan to work on, I donít get as short on patience in the waiting room. The doctorís receptionist gave me this pattern that she had gotten from her mother, and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. This afghan calls for 7 or 8 skeins of 3 1/2 oz. worsted weight yarn, size H crochet hook, and I made 15 strips. Any colors could be used, but I chose the Ecru and Mint Green.
