Background: This was made in honor of a family’s grandmother, Sharlene Ungar. She was called Savta by her eight grandchildren which is Hebrew for Grandmother. Savta found out that she had cancer back in November of 2006. At that time she wanted to make each of her eight grandchildren an afghan. She died before completing all of them.

The family started knitting the rest of them, but ran out of knitting family members. They needed help with #8. So I volunteered.

I love that this pattern is Savta’s. When anyone got an afghan from Savta it was always this pattern. When asked what yarn to use, they said that Savta always bought what was on sale.

The family has approved sharing of this and perpetuating her legacy.

*Please note that I doubt that she invented the pattern, it is just one that she always used. The pattern doesn’t have a name on it nor does it have a company that it is associated with. You will see her corrections on the paper.
