Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Very pretty and very appropriate for me since I live in Florida. I have found many sand dollars on the west coast shores. I have a few in a glass shadow box that I think would look great with a piece of this in the background of that box. You have inspired me yet again!

very addictive pattern. I've made 8 of this pattern from baby blanket size to full afghan. Great for using scraps. Not boring due to the changes in the dc stitches that make up the pattern.

This is BEAUTIFUL!!! It is even more special since its an older pattern. There is just something so nostalgic and connective about crocheting the same pattern many women before you have. I love the modern ombre touch. Thank you for updating this pattern for us.

I made this for my son in law and he loves it. I used navy to red colors.

Who does not love a retro Granny look afghan? And the wobble look of this one is just gorgeous! It uses up left over yarns too which is always great because we all have mountains of those bits and pieces from previous projects. The pattern is rated Easy, too, which is always great for crocheting in the evenings during family time. I should hopefully have this one finished in time for our winter which is almost here in the Southern Hemisphere.

So wonderful to hear from fellow artisans from around the world! This is a beautiful pattern.Terrific that the blogger included written, chart and tutorial instructions. Now I just have to decide whether I'm going to make it an ombre version, my own stripe pattern, or make it as a scrapghan!

I really like this Grandma's Favorite Wobble Afghan pattern. It is very well written and is easy to follow. The story that goes with is is so interesting. I have saved this pattern to add to my to do list along with many more. Some day I'll make this. It is a lot like the V stitch and the up-side-down V stitch. This can be made in many different sizes so the ideas are endless. Thank you so much for this free pattern.

I like the blue color and the monochromatic appeal. What a beautiful story behind this afghan. I admire Aunt Ernestine's memory and her niece Tami Lemons' desire to share her aunt's pattern. Here's the link to the pattern http// Happy crocheting, peeps!

I'm between projects and this looks interesting, but I'm out of ink, so I will have to wait until I can print it.

I am just finishing my version of this afghan with my own colors. I am giving it to my son and his new wife. It is easy to make, but looks more complicated than it is.

tried to upload a picture, but apparently they're all too big

very easy, pattern complete. Easier sometimes to follow the stitch diagrams, the pattern is all double crochet and chains

no I did't try it yet .but soon I will.

this pattern is so messed up, it is missing letters galore throughout the pattern. it just has a 'c' when telling which stitch to do, so I don't know if it is dc, sc, hdc, or what? it is so messed up I cant even use it. Not good, better check this out.

I don't find any missing instructions. Maybe you can share exactly which step you are having trouble with. The pattern seems complete.

I made this for my niece as a wedding gift. I loved the pattern and how quickly it can be finished. I used a knotting technique I found on Pinterest to change colors so that I didn't have all the ends to finish and weave in.

Do share the method for hiding the ends without all the work, please.

Yes, please share the technique you found! I hate weaving in ends when I finish a project and would love to know if there is a way to avoid that! I love finishing a project but then there's the dreaded step of weaving in ends before enjoying your finishing project!

Do you realize you have the wrong name on this pattern? Moogly (the designer) named it "Vintage Wobble Afghan".

Hi Proverbs163 7798375, Yes, we know she has a different name. We often rename patterns to show their versatility :) Thanks!

CraftyChristine- Do you ask the designers before you rename their creations? Honestly, If I designed something and named it, then someone else came by and started calling it by another name every time they talked about it, it would make me kind of upset. Kind of like naming your kid Connor, then someone else says he looks like a Kyle, I'm going to tell everyone his name is Kyle. Just my opinion. :)
