Who’s the winner?
There were some really good entries for my challenge to send in a link to the afghan that most resembles its name (unlike the poorly named IMO afghan pictured). This was a challenge for me as well as my readers. I had to do the judging – and that has been no easy chore.
For the many of you who posted entries like ‘The American Flag’ – well, you were on the right path, but I was hoping for a more abstract relationship between the name and the appearance of the afghan. And, something more representational than the afghan that started this whole inquiry.
So, with thanks to all who sent links to some great afghans that many of us will enjoy making, I happily announce my favorite.
THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER IS:

NOTE: This pattern appears in the book “Afghan Enchantment “. It’s out of print, but you can probably poke around on the ‘net and find it for sale.
It’s called Peacock Splendor, and it is on page 118 of the book. The design is by Shari L. Jacobson.
