This Shades of Amber Tunisian Afghan is a very challenging crochet project. The stitches used are not easy to make and there are too many squares each with different designs to make. But if you really want to make this afghan then go ahead. Where there's a will there's a way. This afghan is very beautiful, it's a very interesting conversation piece among friends and family.

I am in the process of making this afghan and I have a question. How do you connect block 6 to the existing block on the right while crocheting? I don't have a problem connecting to existing blocks on the left while crocheting this pattern, but I don't know how to connect to the right. Can anyone help me?

Click on the word diagrams and it will take you to a page with a colour chart and one with arrows to show the direction of joining for each square.

Where are the diagrams that are needed to place the color squares? The given pattern only goes to the 4th square and then says to follow a diagram that isn't given. Am I missing a link somewhere?
