I've listed directions below but since I was just trying to use up some yarn, I didn't measure anything so nothing is exact!
You will need:
- Afghan hook - I used a size J (US).
- Solid color yarn for the primary color (A), several ounces (I used ecru in mine.)
- Various yarn colors (B), probably a couple ounces of each
- Using color A, make a chain as wide as you want your afghan to be.
- Work 5 rows of afghan stitch. All rows are worked in this stitch.
- Rows 6-10: Continuing in afghan stitch, bring up 5 loops of color A; switch to color B and bring up loops in color B until you are within 5 stitches of the end of the row. Switch back to color A for the last 5 loops. I found it easiest to have a separate skein or ball of color A for these last five loops.
- Working back across Row, do 5 stitches in color A; switch to color B; do last 5 stitches in A.
- Rows 11-15: work in color A.
- Repeat rows 6-15 until afghan measures as large as you'd like; do not finish off.
- For border: in top of third stitch from hook work 8 treble crochet (fan made). Skip 3 stitches; work 8 treble crochet in next stitch. Continue across to the third stitch from the end, work 8 treble crochet. Do not work in the corner - skip to the third stitch past the corner and continue around. Finish off.
If you make an afghan based on these directions, I would love to see your work!
