Nuts About DNA Afghan – Square 106 – Starflower

“Starflower Afghan Square” is my 106th square, for my Mums “Nuts about DNA afghan.”

Starflower Afghan Square, is another one of Diana Krenz’s squares and isn’t it just the prettiest.
I absolutely loved making this one. I even played around a little with tapestry crochet to make certain parts certain colours.
I think it worked out ok???


Diana’s squares are all so much fun. My mind races with ideas of gorgeous blankets consisting of only her patterns. Wouldn’t they be delightful.

As you may have read, I’m using Scheepjes Stonewashed for this mammoth afghan, in colours, Moon Stone, Garnet, Corundum Ruby, Citrine, Malachite, Enstatite and Rose quartz.
I purchased them from Wool Warehouse and Lusciously Loopy Yarn.


I used the following colour order-

Round 1 – Moon Stone
Round 2 – Moon Stone
Round 3 – Moon Stone
Round 4 – Enstatite
Round 5 – Moon Stone
Round 6 – Moon Stone
Round 7 – Corundum Ruby
Round 8 – Corundum Ruby
Round 9 – Corundum Ruby
Round 10 – Corundum Ruby
Round 11 – Rose Quartz
Round 12 – Corundum Ruby & Malachite
Round 13 – Corundum Ruby & Malachite
Round 14 – Corundum Ruby & Moon Stone
Round 15 – Garnet
Round 16 – Garnet
Round 17 – Garnet
Round 18 – Rose Quartz
Round 19 – Garnet

Modifications made for size and stitch count were –

Round 17 – dc instead of half’s and missed the hidden stitch.
Round 18 – dc in back loop across, 1sc, chain 2, 1sc in corners.
Round 19 – Hdc across increasing by 1, 2hdc, chain 2, 2hdc in corners (44hdc each side)
