On my hook

In my World of Crochet.

The Stained Glass Window Afghan!


It’s DONE!!!

Wow, do I love this ghan! I might have to make one for myself now!

This is the Stained Glass Window Afghan in the book 50 Sensational crochet afghans and throws.

I planned to make a couple more squares to frame for me and some family members, I just love looking at it. hehe But I might just end up making a whole ghan again for me. This one is going to my Hubby’s Godmother in Indiana this Memorial weekend so I’ll have to say goodbye to it.  *sigh*

I still want to make something to enter in the fair some day and I can’t decide if it will be one of these or the Cathedral rose window (CRW). I’ve at least started the 2nd CRW so I might just enter it this year If I can get it done in time 🙂 Then do a stained glass window for another year. We’ll see.


So as usuall I let a whole lot of time go by between posts in here. Granted I really haven’t had a lot to say since I was working on the CRW’s and the Stained glass and really haven’t worked on much else lately.

I did get one lapghan for the nursing home done


And just finished assembly of another lapghan for the nursing home that a friend of mine at the Ville made the squares for and sent me. 🙂 Thank you so much B.


Both have more info on them on the Nursing Home page on my blog.

I made a few gag gifts for Hubby’s Aunt Mary and they were big hits at her B-day party! I won’t show them all here so as not to offend anybody but this is the thong and pasties part of her GAG gift.

I couldn’t find a pattern for a thong so I just had to wing it so of course it doesn’t really fit but that wasn’t the point of the gag so it doesn’t matter.

  5. Is there any chance that you would be able to email me a pattern for the stained glass window as I live in australia. I am having great trouble finding anyone who has the pattern. Annie’s won’t sell overseas and very wary of Ebay offers.
    Thank you for answering in advance.

  9. Bought the book this weekend. Everything was going fine till round 8. I think there is a misprint in the book. Need help!! The afgehn is promised to a coworker who is reconvering from surgery. The square just does not look like th picture after round 8. Would be willing to pay long distance fees or anything to get this fixed. Tried to call teh publisher to see if this book had been re-written or if there were corrections available. Bought the book just for this pattern. What a disappointment.
    Your version is gorgeous.

  10. I absolutely love this pattern. Are emailing this at all? I would gladly pay you for it. This afghan is so beautiful.

  11. I’ve also been working on this afghan and nearly tossed the thing when I started working the border around the squares. Finally, I had someone else read the directions to me while I did the crocheting and found that there is an error in the pattern. Once I finally figured this out it is a wonderful pattern. I’ve emailed the publisher to see if they have the corrections for the pattern.

  12. Hello Brenda:
    Thank you for the comment. There is a misprint for round 13 as well. On working the corner motifs, I took out my trusty calculator and noted that it should be 20 stitches between each motif and not 19. The pattern for the border had mistprints as well. I had to rework it. Finished the first square last night. I must say it is a work of art. I did contact the publishers at DRGbooks.com and someone there was most helpful with this pattern. Would encourage anyone to contact them. What I find incredible is that this book has been printed at least 4 times and no corrections for this pattern have been made to date. The only correction for this pattern is in the assembly of the squares which should read 3 rows of 4 squares or 4 rows of 3 sqaures depending on your prespective. One last note, have noted that the two bottom outside edges of the corner motifs pock through the space created by the pattern. Will retool that a bit to get it to stay behind the black edging. Would love to talk to anyone about this pattern.

    • Is there a corrected pattern avaliable? I e-mailed the publisher a week ago requesting corrections but no reply yet.

      • I don’t know if there is anything in it that needed correcting. I can’t remember at the moment. 🙂

        Comment by Heather | March 5, 2010

      • Go to annies attic.they have an errata with the corrections.

        Comment by Diana | September 11, 2013

    • I am having trouble too. Have gotten to round 7 and am lost. Any help would be appreciated.

      • Let me see if I can help. I had to dig out my book. What is getting you stuck?

        Comment by Heather | April 23, 2010

  13. Hello! Your stained-glass window afghan is beautiful. I also bought the book just for this pattern, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it is FULL of beautiful patterns. For anyone else reading this, the book is well worth the buy!

    I am having trouble with round 8. Can you help? Are there any corrections for round 8? When it says to “join G with sl st in any cl” and later, “sc in next cl”, I don’t understand where to put the stitch in the cl. Does it mean in the back loop?

    I’m fairly new to crocheting, so I would be very grateful for any help or advice you could give me for this pattern. Thank you so much!

  14. Hello Erin:
    Contact me at 315-353-2080 and I will talk you through it or leave me your phone number.

  15. Thanks Erin. I agree there are many beautiful patterns in here this is one book I will treasure.

    I’m real bad at explaining things but I’ll try. 🙂 I didn’t look for any corrections so don’t know if there are any. The cl is the cluster done in black on round 7 and then you join in any of them then ch1 then sc in the same cluster as joining.

    I hope that helps.

      • I couldn’t find a place for the corrections at Annie”s attic and don’t feel I should have to pay anymore money to get the pattern corrections

  17. Love the stained glass ghan… I have the book and I’m new to the art of crocheting. I want to be able to work up to that pattern in the future. You did a beautiful job. I hope that you’ve had some time to make one for yourself to enjoy!

  18. Hello! I want to express my sincere joy at seeing the beautiful work that you have made. I would very much like to try the beautiful stained glass blanket. i was wondering if it wouldn’t be an imposition, if you could send me the pattern for this and the catherdral rose window. Many thanks and i wish you many years of happy crotcheting. I will look forward to seeing your future work!!
    Best Wishes,
    Rose Anne

  19. Your work is beautiful. I am to round 7 and lost, any suggestions where I can get help?

  20. Hello there I am having the same problem with the stained glass afghan pattern from the book I purchased I am lost at round 7 as well and could use some instruction on correcting the pattern that is in my book.
    I purchased the book for this pattern 2 years ago and have ruined wool pulling it out over and over again and have decided it is a pattern error not the fact that I am dense lol.
    I wrote the company with no response to my e-mail and would appreciate any help I can get in correcting the errors in the pattern before I attempt it again.
    Many thanks,

    • Go to annies attic they have the corrections for this afghan. Also they have the pattern to download for $5.99 in a PDF with no mistakes.

      • Hi there thanks for replying to my post.
        I went to Annie’s Attic and was unable to find the corrections there, where would I find the errata?
        I did not want to spend again more money to get corrections.

  21. The Stained Glass Window is flat gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration! I’ve linked your post over in my blog…

    I noticed you hadn’t updated your blog in quite a while. Hope you’re well and still making beautiful things.

  22. […] Are you noticing a theme here? (BTW, the person who made the blanket shown above blogged about it here. Go tell her how gorgeous it is.) Again, I had to search out the book which contained this pattern. […]

  23. Goodday, Your stained-glass window afghan is awesome. I also bought the book just for this pattern, but love all the other beautifull patterns as well.

I have used brown for (A) in stead off black…but when I am doing the sc the brown is then just another row and according to the photo..after the colour (C) I don’t see the (A) as another full row of sc. Please hetlp me via my e-mail. I am in South Africa.
