Afghan / Lapghan

(Mom''s "C.M.L." Special Afghan / Lapghan Pattern � Copyrighted)

This pattern is over 35 yrs old. Mom made this afghan for our daughter back in 1972, then for both our sons. Mom also made this afghan for all our neices & nephews over the years, & I {JMSQ} have made it for our children & Grandchildren over the years.
Were re-introducing this wonderful pattern � 2007 for you to enjoy and God Willing make it your family heirloom as well.

We use this pattern to make Afghans (ch 121), Lapghans (ch 71, or 87) , & Baby Blankets (ch 55 or 71) & follow directions below. We added both pockets & ties for giving to senior''s and ties for use in wheelchairs

Wheelchair lap-ghans usually measure 36 x 36... For the others we make them 36 x 48, unless I know the person is taller and needs a longer one.
