Part of MOOGLY 2014 CAL #23

This is the re-design of the Vintage pattern Puritan Bedspread (the original works up to 15” in worsted weight) by Cecilia Vanek (American Thread Co.).

It has a new border, and a complete tutorial that shows the details of the rather complex instruction.

I wanted that everyone would be able to make one without struggling through the complicated original instructions, and I also wanted it to be made available to be worked in worsted weight yarns to a 12” size, suitable for swaps and afghans.

You’ll find the tutorial, which is attached as a separate pdf, to be thorough and helpful.

The pattern is rated intermediate to advanced, although I don’t think any of the techniques are unmanageable with the tutorial!!

errata in original copy--fixed now. Highlighted in red--Brnd8 should read on the third line….sk next dc…

Note on tutorial: The tutorial is a little confusing when it comes to the circle on the back. It’s meant to be a circle, but the photos show the square. The method is the same, however. Some day, when I get time, I’ll do up another and show only the circle photos :)

Enjoy. Please share your efforts.

I am planning a CAL in my group at some point--maybe once the 2014 Mystery Afghan is completed…
