Link Up! Crochet Along Afghan Sampler 2015

It's time to show off! Your 2015 Crochet Along Afghan Sampler is complete, so let us see it. Come link up...

Now that I've had a few weeks distance from the end of the 2015 Sampler I'm really curious: How many finished afghans are there out there? How fabulous do they look in all different colorways? Are you as pleased with your final blanket as I am? SHOW ME! Let's see your final blanket.

How It Works

  • The link party on this page is solely for creations made following The Inspired Wren Crochet Along Afghan Sampler 2015.
  • Feel free to link up once for each version of the Sampler (or dishcloth square) you completed.
  • You don't need a blog! You can link from Pinterest (provided it's your own work), Fickr, Facebook, Instagram, or a blog. 

What's Next?

All of the posts from the 2015 Sampler will stay here on the blog indefinitely. I'll also be adding an FAQ section to the main Crochet Along Sampler page here on the blog. If you're not finished there's no need to panic, and if you want to make another it'll still be here. Additionally, I'll be compiling a PDF file (perfect for printing) with the entire Sampler in one document and it will be available for a nominal fee. Eventually. I am not putting a deadline on that one, because...

I admit, I am happy to be done with this crochet along project. I seriously lost steam at the end and made it through knowing you were out there crocheting along and waiting for the final sets of instructions. Even though I'm relieved to see the end of this project, I love my final afghan. It was so very worth it. THANK YOU. Without you I would never have finished this project. It was wonderful to have your support: from those of you who were there from the beginning, to those of you who edited my many mistakes; from those of you who shared this with friends and in Facebook groups, to those who just crocheted along. Thank you all.

A few people have asked if I'll be doing another Crochet Along for 2016. No. But! I do have some fun, small projects on deck. More importantly (for the crochet along lovers out there), I have plans for a Striped-Sampler in 2017. Why 2017? I want to hook-up a larger blanket than the 2015 Sampler and I really want to be ahead of the crochet along the next time I do this. I was serious at the beginning when I said I was "making it up as I go." I was. I did. The deadlines helped me finish but they were difficult to work against. I'm learning from that lesson and planning for a better outcome next time. I hope you'll join me when that time comes. Until then, happy hooking, my friends!
