Music afghan graphs
ok by request I am going to attempt to post the links to the graphs for the music afghan squares here. If anyone has trouble viewing them please let me know and I will try and email them to you. I am also putting the basic instructions but in my opinion each of you could join squares and edge as you desire.
Music AfghanSupplies: white yarn 32 ounces
black yarn 12 ounces
Size I/9 5.5mm hook or size needed for gauge.
Gauge: 4sc and 5 rows=1
Finished size: squares are 15in wide by 14in tall
Afghan is made up of 2 squares of each graph
Treble Clef, eight note, single eight note, quarter note, half notes, whole notes
*To change colors: work the last stitch to within one step of completion, hook new yarn and draw through all loops on hook
For each square:
Row 1: with I hook and white ch 51, single crochet in second ch from hook and in each ch across (50 sc) ch 1 turn. Mark row 1 as wrong side
Row 2: sc in each sc across ch 1 turn.
Row 3-50 begin following graph at row 3 changing to black* in last sc made
At the end of row 50 do not finish off. Ch 1 3 sc in end of row 50, sc in end of each row down, 3sc in free loop of first sc of row 1, sc in each free loop across, 3sc in end of row 1, sc in each row up, 3sc in first sc of row 50, sc in each sc across, join with slip stitch to first sc. Fasten off.
Repeat pattern following each graph 2 times. Total squares 12
Joining: join with slip stitch. Hold two squares with wrong sides together matching top of one square to the bottom of the other slip stitch through both loops of both squares. Finish off.
Continue in the same manner until you have four squares in a vertical strip. Repeat with four more squares two times. You will now have three strips of four squares each. Take two strips hold with wrong sides together and matching top to top slip stitch through both loops of both squares the length of the strip. Repeat with final strip held to wrong side of one of the other strips.
EDGING: RND 1 with right side facing join white with slip stitch in the center sc of any corner, Ch 1. 3sc in same stitch, *sc in each sc to first joining sc in either side of joining repeat across to next corner, 3sc in center sc of corner, repeat from * around join with slip stitch to first sc finish off.
RND 2 join black in center sc of any corner stitch ch 3 4dc in same stitch *skip next sc sc in next skip next sc 5dc in next, repeat from * around join with slip stitch in the 3rd ch of first ch 3. Finish off
