Here is a couple of afghans I am currently working on. Both of them are crocheted.
The first is called the Fisherman's Ring and I found the pattern on this site by Priscilla Hewitt, here. I am acutally using up some scrap yarn so I have a couple different colors of tan yarn.
This one is also from scrap yarn the constant is the red, white, and blue. As you can see I keep changing them around. This pattern is by Edith Smith and I found it on this website.
