Hogwart's House Shields Afghan
This time I used a size H circular crochet hook. (It has a hook on each end but I just put a rubber band on the one end so the stitches would stay on the cable.)
This shows the front and the back.....
I trimmed it by doing half-double crochet in clusters of three, two and one. I had to change between rows to keep it flat. I used one main House color to represent each House.
The graph was from here...
You need to download the Pattern Viewer first which is located at the bottom of the page. There is also another Harry one on here.
As you can see, I did not crochet the banner around the shield. (With "Hogwarts" and "Never tickle a sleeping dragon" motto).(The graph was something like 18 pages and I decided to only make the middle).
I really loved doing this project!
