Need Musical Notes/Instruments Afghan ideas...

I am thinking ahead to October. My daughter's boyfriend turns 30 - he plays guitar/piano/keyboard and a few other miscellaneous instruments. Thought an afghan in a musical theme would be fun - he loves her afghan. Anyone have a pattern? suggestions? Have some 32x32 graphs of some but thought I'd ask you all for your input. Thanks.

I have one and made it for my son who majored in music. It is really very attractive. You use worsted, and it has an ecru background. It has the musical staff, which is repeated 3 or 4 times. I put a simple edge on it that I think I made up because I think it did not have a finished edge. I had a friend who plays piano check to see if it was any kind of tune (it gets repeated) and it is not. So if you feel really talented, you could take the idea and make the "music" actually be a tune you feel he likes. I am happy to share this old pattern with you, Susan. I bought it on Ebay; it was from a magazine. Email me. Sheilajoyce@hotmail.com

finished the afghan - used the music notes blocks although I liked the afghan pattern I got from Sheila Joyce - just didn't like that you needed to only work from one side; figured it would take forever with all the stopping/starting

will give it this weekend and only finished it last night

There was a URL several posts above yours that offers musical notes, and a piano, if I remember right.

Hi! I saw the picture of the music blanket and I really would like to make it. My boyfriend and I are music majors and I want to make it for him. Can you send me the pattern for it? My e-mail is hippiekid10@me.com

Thanks so much!

hippiekid - If you are music major, I assume that means you are in college. As a soon-to-be-educated person, quit asking people to violate copyright law. It is theft. No one but the copyright holder has the right to distribute a pattern.
