Lots of beautiful afghans shown on this show.
Did anyone see the georgeous 'bluebonnet' looking afghan on the back of a couch?

I found a video and that is beautiful, we went there in 1986 and saw some of the homes that were open for tourists with tours of how they lived. It was very interesting . They had some beautiful quilts for sale.

Did anyone find the pattern for the afghan in episode 1 of breaking Amish, the afghan was on the back of the couch. I can find the granny square ripple stitch pattern but not that exact one. I would appreciate any help in locating that exact pattern.:pinterest:clap

I searched Google Images, and found one very close. Unfortunately, the URL won't copy. It had directed me to a page for "Project Linus", giving a "Granny Ripple" pattern. The picture of the afghan is in black and white, so imagination is needed. Try typing "Granny Ripple" into the Google Images search bar, and you should find the pattern.

Also, Leisure Arts #335, "Afghan Parade", has a "Lacy Chevron" pattern that is an even closer match. It can be seen on Ravelry. I hope this helps. That afghan was striking! I'd love to make one myself.

I googled larkfoot pattern in images and I am not sure if this is closer to the pattern... If you look at the one that is done in red, pinks, and white...

I found a picture of the afghan on tlc's website and compared it to the Huckleberry friend post and I think it is the same pattern... I am going to try it in green and see what happens...

Has anyone found the afghan pattern that the mom is working on while visiting her son in Florida. Also saw it on the couch seat at her home. It has a huge Lacey edge and it is not straight across but the stitches seem to go ahead into a newer row for later adding. I tried everywhere snd all the books I had and all the web sites I saw. It is more than a scalloped edge sort of star flake edged or flowery edge that is a large stitch repeat of st least 2-3 inches. Please helpe

I poked thru the TLC Breaking Amish site looking for a pic of Mary and her afghan but I couldn't find one. I have the shows on DVR, so I replayed those sections... I'm thinking it may be bernat's Mountain Mist afghan? You can see a pic of it here.

 

I noticed it the other night when I watched this episode the first time, because I've had that afghan on my "to do" list for a while. After seeing it again, I think this may be it. I don't have any of the older episodes showing her finished afghans, just these recent ones where she is working on this pink, red and white one.

Stageman, I think it might be Mountain Mist... http://www.allfreecr...han-from-Bernat

 

I can only see a small section of what she is working on in her lap, I don't have any pics of the finished afghans in her PA home.

 

Edit 11:30pm... okay, tonite I just found this video of Mary working on her afghan.. it's shown really nicely at the 20 second mark.. Now I'm not so sure it is mountain mist... I'll keep looking!

I'm looking for the pattern as well I'm making the mountain mist afghan right now and it doesn't look quite like the pattern Mary is crocheting. I have been searching all night and can't find the pattern, I'll keep looking.

There is an interesting thread on Ravelry about this, lots of us are looking for this pattern.

 

Someone has posted a pinterest link with pic and graph, check out post #27.
