Clan Buchanan Complete

I can't believe that it's been 2 1/2 years since I started this project. I blogged about this afghan that I had started for my aunt and uncle. (January 2008!) It's crocheted and then woven for the plaid effect. I zipped through the crochet part and then hit my busy season and weaving the chains seemed to take forever. Well, Mom finally took the project home with her and finished it in no time. She gave it to my aunt and uncle months ago, but I never got to see it...until now. It turned out great! Thanks Mom.

it is so beautiful. I can only imagine the talent it takes to make something this stunning with crochet. It truly is a work of art!

That looks fantastic!!

How exactly do you mean it's "woven"? Is that directly with a tapestry needle + yarn pulled through between the crochet stitches??

Thank you! Yes, the main stripes of color are crocheted first. Then crocheted chains are woven through to create the plaid.

Is it possible you can share or sell this pattern to me? I married a Buchanan, and would love to make one of these afghans for a family reunion scheduled for June of 2017. Any help you could give me would be wonderful. Thank you, Marilyn Buchanan.

I am wondering the same thing. I married a buchanan and would LOVE to be able to make him one for his birthday.
