Claudia Afghan | Crochet Pattern | Design in Progress

 Here are a few samples of a design that is just about ready for testing!

It's named the "Claudia Afghan" after my sweet virtual crochet friend @crochetaladia 
who has been instrumental in testing and making so many of my patterns and 
most importantly keeping me motivated!


These were made with Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn and will include a couple of colorway options.

Which one do you like best?

Are you a pattern tester with at least four colors of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn
 laying around and would like to test this pattern? 
If so, give me a holla at astri.bowlin@gmail.com

Warmly,

Astri Elisabeth
