Lacey Scrap Afghan-- my first shared free crochet pattern

>> Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Back in 2007, I posted this on Crochetville


My ideal lacey scrap afghan


Make ch of desired length (multiples of 2) using size I hook; change to size H hook:

Row 1:*sc in next stitch, ch 3, sk 1 sp, sc in next stitch ch 3 * repeat to end;

Row 2:turn ch 2, *sc in ch 3 sp, ch 3, * repeat to end of row.

Afghan is completed by repeating rows 1 and 2 to create a lacy blanket look.

(I haven't tried to explain patterns in these terms before so bear with me if there are errors.)

This could easily be done with scraps by just starting with the next new color Or you could chose to change colors by rows (provided you have enough scrap for that)

I usually crochet three rows of each color and leave the tails as fringe.



In this photo I just crocheted a few rows so you could see what it looks like if you only do one color per row. I used a smaller hook (G) because the yarn was sport weigh or smaller. Also I didn't use a larger hook for the chain, hence the gathering effect.

For joining yarn see this link.
