I love this pattern! Easy to follow and will look great in many color combinations. I have finished one in tan hunter green for a gift. I'll be making one in black white for myself )

You can find it on yarnspirations.com/pattern/crochet/afghan-0 It is simply called Afghan. It used Bernat Worsted (discontinued), 2 in the main colour and 1 in the darker one.

thank you so much for your help. Luv the afghan, now to get started. thanks again.

I think they listed the crochet hook size and forgot to put the colors and how many of each balls of yarn we will need. I hope they see that we really need to know.

Please help! I can't find the list of materials, i.e. amount of each color of yarn to use! Am I missing something, blind, or just stupid?
