It seems diamond and I had the same idea today-a Cathedral Window Afghan CAL.

I have some space and can host it if anyone's interested, I've started this afghan but it will go slow so that maybe I won't have to frog it too much.

I even made a button:

[img]http://img216.echo.cx/img216/7129/cathwindcal1md.jpg[/img]

It's hosted at ImageShack so if some of you don't have webspace to host images you can link to it with no problems.

Email or PM me for any other details.

Edit: Here's a list I have so far, if it needs correcting one way or another let me know so I can correct it

Where can I find the pattern?


I can't see the button so can you email it to me directly? (This computer is wiggging out on me and i can't see images for some reason...even on my own website lately) so I apologize for the problem.

Oh, I'm mad crazy nuts about that pattern, but I don't know if I could do it :eek and even if I did think I could try it (like I have time! LOL) I don't know where to find the pattern either...but I can't wait to see what you guys do! That is I think the most beautiful afghan I've ever seen.

Oh, I would love to make what is one of the most gorgeous afghans I've ever seen. BUT I don't have the pattern either. In all my huge stash of crochet magazines, leaflets, and booklets, this is one pattern that I do not own.

Would love the see pictures of the work in progress though.

I'm so in on this. As I thought I can't get decent yarn for it locally so I'll be ordering either tonight or tomorrow and starting it as soon as I get my yarn in. Question: Has anyone used TLC Essentials yarn, and were they happy with it? I'm looking at that and considering it, but since I can't find it locally to give it the touch test I'm a little hesitant to order it blind -- particularly for something this special!

Diamond, I know you said you were using Simply Soft; what type of yarn are you using, Chatty?

I have started it 3 times, frogged it once. I don't have much time, so it is very slow going. I have finally gotten past the hexagon stage and am now doing the "rounds". Not sure what you would call them. I have all my yarn, and so I feel like I have to be committed to the project, or just simply be committed!!! :eek

Hey y'all. I'm so happy you are going to be making this incredible afghan. It is well worth it!!

I have posted a pic of the one I made a few years ago. The photo is bad because it was taken pre-digital, but you'll get the idea.

I'm going to follow along and cheer everyone on!! :bounce

Did someone mention where to get this pattern? Did I just miss it? I'd love to make this. :cheer Drew.. yours is simply gorgeous:cheer


The leaflet was published by Annie's Attic in 1996, and I believe is out of print. It's called Award-Winning Afghans, leaflet #878301. I've heard it is available on eBay from time to time.

Thanks for the kudos! I'm so glad you like it!! :fame

This is one of the most beautiful patterns I have ever seen! Wow, it sure looks like it takes a lot of concentration!

Could you use other colors rather than variegated?
