Simple and Soft Crocheted Afghan
I finished up a couple of projects before Christmas that I just haven't had time to get to writing about. This beautiful afghan was the third one I made in this pattern. I finally had a chance to make "me" something! It's super easy and quick...making great gifts. I've given two as gifts and they loved them.
I used 5 skeins Pearl and 5 skeins Seafoam Lion Brand Homespun yarn for my yarn colors.
Using two strands of Lion Brand Homespun yarn (one of each color) and a size 16mm or similar size crochet hook, make a chain approximately 45 inches long. Mine took 62 chains.
Row 1: Starting in second chain from hook, single crochet across. Chain 1, turn.
Row 2-?: Single crochet across, Chain 1, turn. Repeat until afghan is desired length, approximately 60 inches. I continued until my piece was about 65 inches long.
Tassels can be added, but this yarn frays ALOT so depends on your preference.
