WIP Wednesday - ATW Afghan - New Approach
I started back working on my Around the World Afghan. I think I have been procrastinating on it a bit because it is a little overwelming when I think about it.
I mean it has 945 tiny granny squares - 1,072 if I decide to add the border (which I will probably do in black, perhaps).
I was working from the center, but I have decided to take a different approach and work row - by - row from the bottom up. Then I will join with the center part once I get there.
I'm not sure why I am changing this approach - maybe because when you crochet, you are kind of use to working in rows. Anyway, that is my approach for now - I finished a whole row in just a few hours.
Unlike the pattern states, I am not crocheting each square and then joining at the end. I am joining as I go along. With that many squares, I think it best to do it that way.
Her is about half of a row - see where there is pink then black then pink again - the black in the middle is the center of those pinks is the center of the row - so I added greens then blues on the other side of the pink there (just haven't taken a photo yet)
