This is a seriously awesome pattern, and a great way to use up scrap yarn or left over yarns too! here's a video tutorial on how to do it -

The first one is part 1, the 2nd video is part 2!

For those of you who cant watch videos - here's the written directions -

Okay, I'm new. What exactly is a crochetalong?  Huh Tongue

And I wonder why I never thought of that pattern... I've done stuff similar to it before. Tongue

A crochetalong is where a pattern is proposed and several crocheters all make the pattern, comparing photos along the way and sharing the results.

I really like this pattern and lord knows I have plenty of scraps lying around but I'm already in the middle of several projects Grin

Hmmmm...tempted! I have some yarn to burn through and this looks more fun than my boring sc rows that I was doing. I was thinking about the afghan that looks like rows of tulips, but the yarn colors I have weren't the best choice for that. I only have 3 colors of the yarn, but it could still work, so... this could win out!

I'd love to join!  I've got a TON of bright orange yarn, and I think it would look good in two colors (I like orange with grey).

That is a gorgeous afghan. I've never crocheted an afghan before but I might try now.

Alot of it is patience and time consuming so make sure you can dedicate at least an hour a day to be able to do the afghan.  Smiley  I need to work more on mine.

Have wanted to use this stitch pattern for a long time, so thanks for the push, Lucky...although if I crochet along here I should probably make a scarf rather than a blanket, as I've got a few too many unfinished projects going right now....

However, I do want to point out that the pattern used in the video is not the same as the one pictured here and linked to at the crochetme website.  Just thought this should be noted so that anyone going by the video instruction will know why what they're doing isn't turning out like the picture!
