Easy All Half Double Crochet Afghan

December 6, 2017

This Easy All Half Double Crochet 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.

      1. Do you happen to know if they have discontinued the Mocha colour? I contacted Michaels because it was on their website one day and now I can’t find it anywhere. They told me that they would need the SKU number to look into it.

        Thank you in advance for any information that you might be able to offer.

  1. I chained 102 thinking it would measure about 50 inches but it only came to 36! I’m using a 9mm hook. What am I doing wrong? I’m new to crochet. I bought 5 skeins thinking the afghan would be about 50×60. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Hi! When you did the first row it probably tightened up the chain quite a bit. You can do a small swatch to check your gauge. Do a square and see how many stitches you need for 5 inches. Then times that number by 10 🙂 Hope that helps!!

  2. This is so beautiful. I’d love to try this pattern. The colors are awesome. Would you recommend another similar yarn? It seems the one you used is no longer available. Thanks!

  3. I am doing a queen size bed and I was wondering do I repeat row 2 all the way through or go back to row 1 and 2.

  4. I am a big fan of hdc afghans. Would like to use Plymouth worsted weight yarn. What would you suggest for a hook size, amount of stiches in the foundation. I usually up a size hook for the foundation row so it is not too tight then go back to the required hook. Leared the hard way, lol
    Thank you.

      1. Made this afghan a came out beautiful so easy to put together and warm for cold winter days. I’m making another one buy in different yarn not as soft as yarn recommended in pattern but I’m sure it will be just as nice. Love this afghan pattern.

    I am a fan of Hobby Lobby yarn called (I Love This Yarn. It is not expensive and is beautiful to work with. For this pattern I used #4 weight worsted and it is called Lakefront. Used a J 6.00size hook. Making for my daughter for their cabin on the lake. I too like the half double crochet stitch. If I do another blanket, will use chunky #5 yarn but am so happy with this. Like the color too.
