Multicolored block afghan and pillow.If you know how to crochet a basic granny square this afghan and matching pillow are very easy to make. After crocheting the pillow squares together with black yarn, I took a measurement of both panels. I used my sewing machine and made the inside case from white muslin, left one end open and stuffed it with polyester fiberfill, then sewed the end closed. Then I crocheted a fancy border around the pillow and left one wide end open so I could stuff in the pillow form. Then continued with the fancy border and finished off the pillow.


The afghan and pillow look very much like a stained glass window. Finished Afghan: 43 1/2 inches x 60 inches. Size-G hook

The crocheted afghan will be donated to the V.V.A. (Vietnam Veterans of America) Scholarship Program for next year. At the present time I'm working on a second afghan for V.V.A.

I love to have thick, warm blankets in the winter, but they are often expensive. So what I did was to have a friend teach me to crochet.


At first I could only pick up the single stitch and then learned more a little at a time.

About 15 years ago, I designed an afghan based on a design that my mom used to draw for me. It was three lines in four different directions, with oval lines that connected them.

I made this afghan up in just a couple of weeks choosing my own color combination. The main stitch used is double crochet (dc) and a multiple of ten chains between (dc) groups of ten.

Several years ago I crochet an afghan, unfortunately I can't find a pattern for it now. It was made of individual strips, joined with a single crochet but each strip had a ruffle on it. Would anyone who does crocheting have this pattern or know where I can get it.

I am looking for a crocheted birdhouse afghan pattern. I don't want to order the kit because it doesn't give you a choice on colors of yarn to use. I really need the pattern if anyone can help me.

Thank you

MarySue, I am not sure what your specific birdhouse afghan looks like, but here's an idea. Crochet some plain blocks, then with a lighter weight yarn crochet squares or rectangles, decreasing to a point for the roof. Crochet little circles out of black thread or yarn. Sew these together, applique-style the birdhouses onto your squares.


You can get creative & make several varieties of birdhouses this way. Also you could make the birdhouses out of fabric and sew them on, making your afghan look somewhat like a quilt. What a great afghan you're going to have, no matter what way you make it. Birdhouses are so homey & beautiful. Jayne.

You may already have the pattern, but if not you can find it under Annie's Attic (A year of afghans, book 13). The cost is $11.34 with shipping and handling.

I'm looking for an crochet afghan pattern for my son who is an avid hunter. I've checked some of the free patterns sites, and I may just use a pattern with camo yarn. But I would love to have something with deer or other hunting related design. Thanks!

I have two patterns for afghans that you crochet one row at a time and cut your yarn and start another row to form a design. I would like to know if anyone has this type of crochet pattern or an old Annie's design.

I have a few afghans that are very plain and they need some fancying up. I have the idea to weave in yarn into the afghan. I have no desire to unravel the yarn and make a new one. Any suggestions on how to do this? Any other ideas?

I am looking for the directions to a crocheted afghan pattern from the early 80s. It is titled Aran Isle and is made in blocks. The magazine page I have says Institute Needlework and Sewing Center. It was probably published in McCalls magazine. The picture is on page 154. The directions started on page 288 and continued on page 290 which I don't have.
