OXFORD – American Legion Post 376 will be holding a fundraising raffle for a spirited crocheted afghan. The afghan pattern, “American Hero” was handmade in a festive red, ecru and blue patriotic design, made with love by Darlene Ardron, Post 376 Commander.
“American Hero” is a salute to Old Glory designed by Kay Meadors. The medium weight afghan could be used to sit upon while listening to open air summer concerts in the park or to cozy up with all winter. It took Commander Ardron twelve skeins of premium worsted, 100 percent acrylic yarn, and many hours to crochet this soft throw. It measures 49” x 58.5” and is sure to become a beloved heirloom. The easy care afghan can be machine washed in gentle cycles and tumble dried.
