Mending CrochetBy A Guest Writer – 13 Comments
|A Guest Post by Laura Biondi.
Last week, I found out that my mom used to crochet. I have been crocheting for five years and she never told me! But when I started working on an afghan, it all came out. Her grandmother taught her, and had made my mom a beautiful afghan that she still had. She pulled it out to show me, but we were both so upset to find that moths (or time) had eaten three big holes in it. My poor mom was heartbroken!
I would love to mend this beautiful heirloom for her, but of course I don’t know what stitch, hook size, or yarn my great-grandmother used, so I have no idea how to begin repairs! One of the holes is between two rows, but the others are just big gaps in the pattern. If anyone has any tips to offer me on how to patch or repair this afghan, please comment below!
