ANC Online Auction: Hand-Crocheted Afghan — Karen Field

This gorgeous hand-crocheted afghan quilt is made by Karen Field of Turkish yarn.

ANC subscriber Melissa Field’s mother, Karen Field of Redding, hand-crocheted this stunning afghan just for ANC’s first online auction.

Created in a beautiful mix of dark greens, blues, teal and browns, it’s crocheted from a blend of Turkish yarns — 88 percent acrylic and 12 percent nylon – which gives it a luxuriously soft, cozy feel. The measurements are 78-inches by 52-inches, ideal for a full/queen-sized bed.

It would also make an great throw for a couch for movie night. Here it is on my couch, where the colors work beautifully.

Doni’s grown rather fond of how her couch looks with Karen Field’s hand-crocheted afghan.

This afghan is machine-washable in cold water with similar colors. It’s self-blocking, and can be machine-dried at low heat, or air dried. Do not iron. Do not dry clean.

Thank you, Karen Field, for the many hours you invested to create this gorgeous afghan for ANC’s first online auction.

About Karen Field

Karen Field moved to Redding with her family shortly after she graduated high school. She has called Shasta County “home” for more than 50 years, and has been crocheting for even longer. Her Aunt Ruth taught her to crochet when Karen was about 10 years old, and she’s rarely been without a crochet hook in her hand since then. Karen is happiest with at least one project underway, and several more planned out.

As a world traveler who’s seen all seven continents, Karen still believes there is no place more lovely than the north state, and she is proud to be part of this community.

She wanted to contribute to this auction to help support the extended network of neighbors and friends who were directly impacted by the fires.
