Wrapping up the Crochet Harvest Fields Afghan

 Just a recap on this off the hook... And then...on to the next. 

I promise no more of Harvest Fields.....thanks for your patience.

The new yarn is at the post office,  it should arrive today. Looking forward to starting a new project, with a different color yarn, and different stitches...I love starting a new project.

Here she is not yet steamed, all loose ends in weaved it, I like her much better now, that I can admire her from afar. It was worth it! 

Pattern :  Harvest Fields
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Victorian Rose 4 skeins
Hook G
Time to complete about 3 weeks

The pattern called for a K hook, which is large so the finished product per the pattern should be about 53".

I used a G hook, which is 4 sizes smaller. I crochet loose and so I can afford to go down a size or two on the hook size. I tried using the K hook, and while the stitches were looser, they were to loose. My stitches were not defined and it looked rather messy. I am not a fan of a bigger hook in most cases, the G works fine for me. I tend to use the same weight yarn, and it calls for G hook.

Crochet hook G is s 4mm, K is 6.5 mm.  

There were 46 rounds to this pattern. 

I see that Kristina & Phoebe have stopped over for a visit, they were neighbors at  CBTS, and are now new neighbors here at ARosebyandby...Thank you. 


  1. I just saw your blog on "The Merry Needle." And your blog title made me cover right over, as I am a Rose lover. Then, I saw the beautiful red rose on your side bar and the rose lamp, which is gorgeous. It's nice to meet new friends. I'm a new follower. : )

    Happy March days.

  2. I will never get tired of seeing that gorgeous Harvest Fields round afghan! I would love to see how you display it each season! I wonder what you will crochet next???

  3. I agree your stitches are much more defined with the smaller needle.

    God bless.

  4. Faith, thank you for following us. I appreciate that. I wanted to answer your Christmas fairy does look vintage, doesn't she? I bought her at a shop where I used to live, and now that I live in the mountains with snow, I keep her out until February.

    Also, that was my daughter, Nel's post, about the fairy garden. She made it for my granddaughter, Mia. I've always wanted to create a fairy garden and have collected things through the years, so when I heard she was making one, I gave all of them to her. She did a wonderful job on it.

    I see you have the beautiful red rose on your side bar. It's so lovely, and I like the quote you have underneath it, it's special. I look forward to visiting and seeing more of your posts.



It has been a sincere joy to have you visit.
