Lapghan

Copyright 2002, by Suzetta Williams.  All Rights Reserved

This one is barely a pattern but several people have asked that I write the directions out after seeing my lapaghans.  I like the way there is no right or wrong side and the color way on each side is different.

 

36 inch square

Materials:

 

Worsted Weight - 2 colors
Hook J

 

Foundation: With color one chain 110, leaving an 8 inch tail at start.

 

Row 1:  Hdc in 3rd chain from hook and each chain to end. Fasten off leaving 8" tail.

 

Row 2: With color 2, Hdc in back loop only (BLO) of each hdc of prior row.  Fasten off.

 

Row 3-65: With color one, Hdc in BLO of each hdc of prior row. Fasten off.

 

Fringe:  Wind yarn around object approximately the width of desired fringe, cut.  At the end of row pull two strands of yarn through the last hdc, pull ends of stand and the tail left on that row through and pull tight.  Repeat across both ends of lapaghan, matching color of stands to color of row.

 

Notes: You may want to use a smaller or larger hook, and start with a shorter or longer chain depending on your gauge, this is the combination of hook and number of stitches that works for me to make a 36 inch square.

 

To make a full size afghan chain the number of stitches that is the length you desire.

Christmas Stocking Trim--Angel

Copyright 2002, Pat Cooley. All Rights Reserved.


Basically, this is a ruffled dress, with a sleeve you sew on.  And the wing you sew on.  The head is a circle and I use loop stitch to make hair (I like yellow, but any color works).  I make a half circle for hands and two triangle things for feet.  I don't put a face on, but you can if you are so inclined.  I figure it is a side view, and I usually put hair on half, plus a shorter row or two across the top for bangs.

 

Dress:

Rnd 1:  Ch 5, sc in each chain, ch 2 and turn. (4 sc)

Rnd 2:  2 dc in the dc at the base of ch 2 (3 dc here), 2 dc in each dc across.  Ch 2 and turn.  (9 dc)

Rnd 3:  3 dc (including ch) in the first dc, 2 dc in next 2 dc, and across, 2 dc in last dc.  Ch 2 and turn.  (14 dc)

Rnd 4:  2 dc (including ch) in first dc, 1 dc in each of next 3 dc, 3 dc in next dc, 1 dc in the rest of the dc across.  Ch 2 and turn. (17 dc)

Rnd 5:  Repeat rnd 4 and put 2 dc in last dc.  Ch 1 and turn.  (21 dc)

Rnd 6:  (Ruffle)  1 sc in first dc, 5 dc in next dc, repeat across.

Arm:

Rnd 1:  Ch 4, sc in each of next 3 ch.  Ch 2 and turn.  (3 sc)

Rnd 2:  2 dc (including ch) in each sc.  Ch 2 and turn. (6 dc)

Rnd 3:  2 dc (including ch) in first dc, 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc, 1 dc in the next dc, and 2 dc in the last dc.  Ch 1 and turn.  (9 dc)

Rnd 4:  (Ruffle) Make as for ruffle for dress, but use all sc.

Wing:

Rnd 1:  Ch 8.  TC in 4th ch from hook, dc in next, hdc in next, sc in next, sl st in last. Turn.

Rnd 2:  Do stitches in reverse order to form a triangle.

Head:

 

Rnd 1:  Ch 2.  6 sc in second ch from hook. Join with sl st to first sc.  Ch 1,  do not turn. (6 sc)

Rnd 2:  2 sc in each around.  Ch 1, do not turn.  (12 sc)

Rnd 3:  (sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc), repeat around.  Ch1, do not turn. (18 sc)

Rnd 4:  (sc in first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc), repeat around.  Finish off leaving a tail.  (24 sc)

Hair:

On back of head attach a doubled piece of yarn near the middle, but near the outside edge.  Turn head over and pull the yarn through the last loop on the row until it stops (I work left to right).  Holding the head between your thumb   and fingers of your left hand, form a loop (I usually make them about as long as the first joint on my thumb.  Put your needle back in head near to where the thread came up from the back and make a small running stitch holding the loop with your thumb so it doesn't pull through.  Once you have the loop the size you want it, secure it with a running stitch pulled clear through. Continue to make loops until working across the head and towards the outside edge until you have it covered to you satisfaction.  Hair will hang down and should cover all the running stitches.

Bangs:

So the head doesn't look geaky, I usually put bangs on too using the same loop stitch, but making them shorter.  Hold the head so the "hairy" side is in your left hand and work from what is the top of the head (bottom of the piece) up to about a quarter to a third of the way up.  Work from the hair, to the outside edge.

Hands and feet:

The hands are just one half circle.  Ch 2, 7sc in second ch from hook.  Finish leaving a long thread.

The feet are two triangles.  Ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next, hdc in last.  Ch 4 and repeat for next foot.  Finish leaving a long thread.

Placement:  I usually sew the angel on so her toes are at the top of the heel and her head is half to three quarters up the sock.  Play with placement using straight pins.

Finish:

Sew the dress down first, closing bottom, but leaving the ruffle free (add some fiberfill if you want to in this or any of the main parts).  The angel is meant to be flying, I usually put it at about a 45 degree angle, but use what pleases you.  Sew the head on next, at the flat top edge of dress, I usually do this so she is looking up a little from the angle of the dress. Sew the wing on the back so it back from the hair.  Sew the arm so it is even with the neck edge and attached to the dress.  (To adjust the angle if you need to you can tuck part of the flat edge under as you sew)  As with the dress leave the ruffle free.  The hands go about in the middle of the ruffled sleeve edge, tucked up next to the stitching so it/they are under the ruffle.  Sew the feet on in similar matter at the bottom of the dress, under the ruffle.

Depending on how much room I have above the completed angel, I sew 3 or 5 star shaped buttons at the top of the sock.

    It would be great if someone made one of these patterns would post picture. To me, it's always easier to make something, or even decide to make something if I see what it looks like. Just an idea.
