WHEELCHAIR LAPGHAN

I'M NOT SURE WHERE THIS LITTLE LAPGHAN WILL BE GOING. I NAMED IT PINE TREES AND AUTUMN LEAVES.
I'M NOT SURE WHAT I'M GOING TO DO WITH THE PUMPKIN EITHER. I JUST KNOW IT WILL BE COOKED.

FOR YOU ROSIE

UPDATE 10-23-12
SIZE I HOOK    WW YARN
FOR THIS LAPGHAN I CHAINED 116. THEN I WORKED A DC IN THE 3RD CHAIN FROM THE HOOK AND IN EACH CHAIN ACROSS. CHANGE COLOR CHAIN 2 AND TURN.

ROW 2: DC IN EACH CHAIN ACROSS. CHANGE COLOR. CH 2 AND TURN.

I USED HUNTER GREEN FOR MY MAIN COLOR AND USED  A DIFFERENT COLOR EACH TIME OF LEFT OVER BALLS OF YARN I WAS TRYING TO USE UP.

WHEN CHANGING COLORS IN DC LEAVE THE LAST TWO LOOPS OF YARN ON YOUR HOOK THEN YARN OVER WITH NEW YARN AND PULL LAST TWO LOOPS OFF. THEN CROCHET OVER ENDS AS YOU CROCHET.

WHEN I GOT TO SIZE I WANTED I SC AROUND ALL OFF THE AFGHAN AND SL ST TO FIRST SC.
I LEFT THIS ONE WITH A SIMPLE EDGING BECAUSE IT MAY GO TO A MAN.
YOU CAN ADD MORE CHAINS AT THE BEGINNING TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND ADD MORE ROWS. YOU CAN CHANGE THE HOOK SIZE TO MAKE IT A DIFFERENT SIZE. THIS PATTERN IS VERY FORGIVING SO YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.
GOOD LUCK!

THIS IS A SIMPLE PATTERN AND I'M SURE I'M NOT THE FIRST TO DO THIS. IT'S JUST SOMETHING I CAME UP WITH FOR CHARITY BECAUSE IT'S SIMPLE AND QUICK. YOU CAN CHANGE THE COLORS AROUND AND MAKE IT LOOK DIFFERENT EVERY TIME.
