ornament today, afghan tomorrow

December 12, 2010

I’m in the early stages of my first granny square afghan (my first because I’d never before had the patience for the undertaking!) and wanted to be able to display these delightfully colorful crochet flower motifs right away. It being the holidays, the answer was staring me in the face — deck the tree with them, of course!

I’m sure they’d make a beautiful garland if sewn together at the corners, but I’ve just hung them up as is. The crocheted snowflakes are from this pattern and the mini sweaters are from various free patterns I Googled a while back. Happy Holidays. 🙂



  1. oh, what a GREAT idea… i’ve been wanting to learn how to make these forever… maybe i can keep my tree up and decorate it in red and pink for valentine’s day 🙂

  2. Maya! You are super talented! I love your blog. Thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog. I don’t know how I missed it till now. Really appreciate it and will definitely be following your blog. We should get together for some workshop afternoons. Happy New Year!
