There's nothing better than an old-fashioned Christmas crochet blanket to keep you warm during the holidays. The Victorian Ornaments Afghan will do just that, and add a festive vintage flair to your home. This Victorian crochet blanket uses the treble crochet and the double treble crochet stitch, which results in a very beautiful texture. The forest green and crimson red colors make this vintage crochet afghan a must for winter. If you are in need of Christmas crochet ideas, look no further.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Special Techniques:
Adjustable-ring method—Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring. After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring. Invisible join—After last stitch in around is made, cut yarn leaving a 6"/15 cm tail. Pull tail completely through last stitch. Thread the tail onto yarn needle and weave the end under the top 2 loops of the first st of the round and then back down in to the center of the top of the last stitch of the round.
Join with a stitch—Place as lip knot on hook. Yarn over number of times needed for specific stitch (e.g. do not yarn over for sc, yarn over once for dc). Hold wraps in place with finger and insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, complete as for specific stitch.

Notes 

  1. Afghan is made from 83 large motifs, 14 half large motifs, and 82 circle motifs. The motifs are arranged according to the assembly diagram and sewn together.
  2. Around of slip stitches is worked after every color change. The next round of stitches will always be worked into the stitches of the previous round, not into the slip stitches.
  3. Most rounds and rows begin by joining the yarn with a particular stitch and end with an invisible join. This results in a join that is almost undetectable. If preferred yarn can be joined with a sl st at the beginning of around, and a traditional beginning chain (e.g.ch 2 for hdc, ch 3 for dc, ch 4 for tr, and ch 5 for dtr) worked instead of joining the yarn with a stitch. At the end of around, the invisible join can be used, or the round can be joined with the more traditional slip stitch.

There isn't a picture of the afghan but there are instructions. It just doesn't help to see if I like it before starting. Very sad. (

Hello pdstordeur 7159926, there was a temporary glitch in our system, but the image for this pattern has now been restored. Our apologies for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

What do we need the knitting needles for?

There is no mention of knitting needles at all, the pattern indicates a Tapestry and a Yarn needle, those are large eyed needles to sew yarn with and can be found near the hooks in the craft/big box stores like walmart or michaels.

what are the other colors, 2, 3, and 4?

diannemasias - We apologize for the error in the pattern. We are contacting the original designer in hopes of finding out the colors you are referring to. In the mean time, if you would like to crochet this pattern, we suggest that you could try to match the colors to the photo in Simply Soft yarn. We will update the pattern when the designer replies. Thank you for your comment. Happy crocheting! - Editors at AllFreeCrochet

The pattern has been updated with the colors. Thank you!
