Chrysanthemum Crochet Afghan

The Chrysanthemum is a symbol of the light of hope in dark times, as it blooms even into November. It's beauty is a wonderful reminder that the struggles of this world are just darkness waiting for a light to shine.

This afghan was designed and created as a donation to the FO(u)R WALLS benefit art exhibition sponsored the by the Iowa State College of Design. All proceeds from the auction supported a local homeless shelter in Ames, Iowa, the Emergency Residence Project, and a non-profit design firm in Delhi, Engineering Ministries International-India.

This project on homelessness was focused on the story of hope, and all of the ways that art can portray hope in the middle of a broken and struggling world.

This beautiful, warm afghan was crocheted using Caron Simply Soft yarn in Soft Pink and Chocolate. A special technique was used to crochet with both colors at once, as well as enhance the pink for the petals of the flower.
