• [Free Pattern] Make A Beautiful Blanket With This Challenging But Fun Afghan Block

    By -

    Are you ready to take on a new challenge? Here is an adventurous re-design project test. This looks much harder then it really is. Some may say this beautiful pattern is a bit “fiddly” and it may take a little more time to make it than the usual squares but if you put effort into it you’ll love the end results. Regardless, this is a fun and challenging square to make. Imagine a whole blanket out of these squares: Stunning!

    The Purifying Puritans 12″ Afghan Block by Margaret MacInnis is the re-design of the Vintage pattern Puritan Bedspread (the original works up to 15” in worsted weight) by Cecilia Vanek. The re-written pattern has received great reviews and it also has a photo tutorial for step by step instructions.

    This is the re-design of the Vintage pattern Puritan Bedspread (the original works up to 15” in worsted weight) by Cecilia Vanek (American Thread Co.).

    It has a new border, and a complete tutorial that shows the details of the rather complex instruction.

    I wanted that everyone would be able to make one without struggling through the complicated original instructions, and I also wanted it to be made available to be worked in worsted weight yarns to a 12” size, suitable for swaps and afghans.

    You’ll find the tutorial, which is attached as a separate pdf, to be thorough and helpful.

    The pattern is rated intermediate to advanced, although I don’t think any of the techniques are unmanageable with the tutorial!!

        Thanks Debbie,I’m glad you like it. Sorry you’re having troubles downloading the pattern. Slow connection has to do with either your internet provider or this site’s server. The patterns opens in less than 10 seconds for me so please try again. If is still slow for you, maybe trying at a different time will help. 🙂
