A challenging advanced project. This definitely would make a great wedding gift, but it would have to be for a very special couple and also one that would appreciate how much time and love gives in to something like this, and one that I knew would take care of and cherish this to pass down to their children if they are blessed with any.

made this for my daughters wedding. backed it with fleece and added a boarder, quilted it together

Leave a comment...I want to save this pattern for a future project.

It took me about 5 months to finish and I added my own border. I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out.

Would it be possible for you to say which yarn and colors you used? This is extremely beautiful.

This is really lovely - a piece that deserves to be a family heirloom!

I would love for someone to upload a video for this. I do much better watching the video.

Very Nice work elspeth i love it i realy would like to finish mine lol

Can some one make a video of this being made i have started it but can't finish it if some one could do a video of them crocheting this and posting it i would really be gratefuller. It was supposed to have been a wedding gift for a friend of mine but i can not finish it i have been working on it for two years now lol and it just sets in a box in my closet please help.

I made this afghan, and I tried to upload a pic of it to share online, but after uploading the pic nothing else happens. I am very proud of the finished product and would love to share it. What do I need to do next?

Hi elspeth2460 9588985, We have approved the photos and you can now see them above. Your afghan looks great-- thanks for sharing! -editors of AllFreeCrochet

Can you please send me the construction chart? Every time I try to get it my computer shuts down....Thank you

Can someone help me with the directions for the edging on the bands? I don't understand what it means by "work (sc, ch 2, sc) sc evenly spaced around working (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner and working 1 st in each row end."

the (sc, ch2, sc) is only for the corners; it is "work sc evenly spaced around working (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner...etc.)

This project is a large project. It took a long time to complete. I had no problems doing each piece. The only thing i didn't like about the finished project is that there was no border so I added one. It was really to plain for me. It fits the top of my queen size bed nicely and my cats think that it's their blanket.

Made this for my son and his new wife in rust colors. They love it! It is a fun project.

I made this afghan for my son and new wife in rust colors. They love it! It was a fun project.

i've been having trouble making the octagon motif. they don't seem right, and i've tried eight times so far. it gets disheartening to rip it back so often...will someone please be kind enough to post a tutorial? thank you in advance!

I don't know if this has been updated yet but I came across a pattern correction for this at redheart.com link is http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW2698_corr.pdf I would like to do one of these my self......so many patterns so little time!!!

I also made this in autumn colors for my son and new wife for their shower. They love it. It was a big hit at the shower.

I made this as a wedding present for my sister. She loves it. I used autumn colors of browns and greens.
