Afghan Repair

A client commissioned me to repair a family afghan that had been crocheted by a friend of hers who had passed away. The most difficult part of this repair was finding yarn of a similar color, weight, and fiber content to do the repair.

Luckily, the person who had stabilized the large hole had preserved most of the unraveled yarn and secured it in place. I was able to reconstruct most of the crochet stitches using that yarn. This photo shows the repair on both holes.
