Country Christmas Afghan Crochet Pattern

October 31, 2018

The Country Christmas Afghan Crochet Pattern is one of my favorite blankets I’ve made. These granny squares are easier than they seem and I love how they look when they’re joined. The cluster stitches really pop and create a pretty design that looks much more intricate than it really is. The colors I chose are very subtle with a lot of neutrals. But I think it would be really pretty with bright Christmas colors, too!

Fasten off, weave in all ends.

I recommend wet blocking the squares before joining them.

SEWING

Lay your squares out in 9 rows of 7

If you want the same color order as pictured, this is the order I used—

Row 1: dark red, brown, dark green, brown, dark red, brown, dark green

Row 2: brown, red, brown, green, brown, red, brown

Row 3: dark green, brown, dark red, brown, dark green, brown, dark red

Row 4: brown, green, brown, red, brown, green, brown

Repeat the color pattern for rows 1 – 4 to row 9

Use the main color (Linen) to whip stitch the squares together. I did every row horizontally and then did every row vertically.

Join a long piece of yarn (about 48”) to the outside corners of two squares. Join in the middle ch of the ch 3 corner space.

Whip stitch the two squares together. When you reach the end of the squares, don’t cut yarn, continue by joining the next two squares in the center of the corner ch 3.

Continue for the entire row. Do all the rows horizontally and then vertically.

Weave in all the ends.

BORDER

Join main color to any corner ch 3 space.

Row 1: ch 1, *3 sc in corner space, sc in each stitch to next corner* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st

Row 2: ch 1, sc in same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next, skip 2 stitches, sc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st (the repeat may not work out perfectly, that’s ok, make adjustments as needed)

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

And you’re done with this blanket! I hope you love it!

  1. You stated to make 63 sguares total, and how many of each color, but the totals don’t add up. You said 21 of one color, 10 of another color, then 10 of another color, the 6 of another and 6 of another that equals 53.

  2. I used to quilt and this reminds me of that. This is the prettiest afghan I have ever seen. Thank you so much for making it available for free. I will send pics when I finish.
