I've always liked plaid whether it's a shirt, skirt, top, bedsheets, linen, kitchen or bathroom accessory, I just loooove plaid. This Plaid Christmas Crochet Afghan Pattern is a welcome project for Christmas. Who would think that you can make a crochet plaid design? I can't wait to do this project.

I just finished crocheting the Plaid Christmas Afghan - and it is beautiful!! My favorite pattern so far! It was very easy and came together fast. I highly recommend this pattern - I am making matching pillows to go with this afghan next. It would be beautiful in other colors too.
