This afghan is a beast measuring a whopping 70″ x 95″! The beauty of this pattern is that it can be made in any size. This blanket is about a twin bed blanket size, so it’s big. It could easily be made as a throw blanket as well.
My hubby had been asking for a blanket forever, but I just never seemed to get around to it. Poor guy kept getting passed on by. But when he spotted this yarn at Michael’s I knew it was time to finally get to it and make him his own afghan.
I used Loops & Threads Barcelona yarn and I love it. It’s a little bit textured, so not much was needed to really make this afghan beautiful. I used the half double crochet stitch for the entire afghan, but I crocheted in the back loop only which gives the pretty ribbed look. This pattern is so easy, it’s just a simple one row repeat. Any level crocheter can make this textured afghan.
