2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Easter Afghan with quick tutorial on: April 21, 2011 12:54:55 PM
This is an afghan that I made with a random pattern I came up with from the top of my head.  Not sure if it was already done, or if I had seen it before, so Im not saying its my very own pattern, but the idea of the pattern came to me and I decided to make it.  Anyhow, here's the easter afghan that I made!



But basically, it's done like this -

Chain how ever wide you want it to be but in multiples of 3.

for the first row, all double crochet stitches.

for the 2nd row, do 3 double crochet stitches, chain 3, skip the next 3 double crochet stitches, then do 3 double crochet stitches, and repeat that all the way to the end.  

Then keep repeating rows 1 and 2 over and over, ending with a solid row at the end, and add your border and that's how you do it!

A tip on keeping the blanket straight and not lomp sided, is on every row, chain 3 then skip the first stitch, and do your other 2 double crochet's.  I have found that method the best way to keep your blankets from getting lompsided when working with a row instead of piecing it together like for a granny square.  This stands true for any time you do rows no matter what pattern you use.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First Sampler afghan on: April 21, 2011 12:48:04 PM
I usually follow a pattern when I make afghans, but this time around I made a sampler afghan with all different patterns! I wasn't sure how it would turn out but hope yall like it anyways.
