This shawl won't fall off your shoulders! I used Red Heart Collage, three 3 ounce skeins but I found out that this yarn has been discontinued. Any worsted weight yarn will do, though. I used a J/6,00mm hook and it took about 3 evenings to make.

Try this:
Row 1: ch6 join. Ch 3, work 11 dc in the ring, Join to top of ch-3. 12 dc. Fasten off

Row 2; Join new yarn with a sl st to first dc, ch 6, (dc in next dc, ch 3) around. Join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beg. ch 6. Fasten off 12 loops.

Row 3: Attach new yarn with a slst to any ch 3 space, ch 3, work 2 dc in same sp, ch 1, (3 dc in next ch-3 sp, ch1) around. Join with a sl st to top of beg ch-3. Fasten off.

Row 4: Attach new yarn with a Sl st in any ch-1 sp, ch1 sc in same space, ch 3 {{(sc in next ch 1 sp, ch-3) in next ch 1. sc in next ch1, ch 6 for corner,  (sc in next ch 1 sp, ch-3) in next ch 1,sc in next ch1, ch 6 for corner}} rep between the {{}} around. You should have 4 corners,   Join with a sl st to first sc. Fasten off

Row5: Attach yarn in first ch-3 sp, ch3, 2 dc in same sp, 3 dc in next ch-3 sp, in ch 6 sp, work (3 dc, ch2, 3 dc), {{3 dc in next next ch-3 sp, twice, work corner}} around. Join with a sls to to top of beg ch-3. Fasten off.

I worked this off the top of my head by looking at the square. If there are any mistakes, let me know as I did not test the pattern, but if you tried to make it before, you will see how it goes together.

50  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Happy Kwanzaa Afghan with link to free chart on: December 26, 2014 09:39:21 AM


Here is a Happy Kwanzaa afghan worked side to side. I find that when lettering is involved working sideways is easier to tame the yarn bobbins!

It's made with Red Heart Super Saver in the traditional colors and an I/5.5mm hook.
