Also known as: The Most Nerve-Wracking Experience of My Life (or one of them.) 🙂
My mother made this gorgeous Daisy Square Afghan. There must have been over 1,000 ends to weave in, and she wove them all in securely, but Magic Rings aren’t the most durable things. It is truly a crochet masterpiece, which was why when this happened, we were horrified.
Luckily, Pinterest has never failed me, and I had pinned a link a few months prior on “Mending a Friend’s Granny.” So I dug that up, found some sort-of-matching yellow yarn, looked up the Daisy Square pattern, and had a go.
Here are some in-process pictures, although if you have this problem, you should check out the tutorial. Seriously, bookmark this page, staple it to your wall, tattoo it on your arm – IT WILL SAVE YOUR GRANNY SQUARE AFGHAN.
I’m so glad this magnificent afghan could be saved – an ENORMOUS thank you to Creative Fidget for posting the tutorial!
See, I knew those hours of browsing Pinterest would come in handy someday. 😉
