If you love to crochet but have your heart set on making a quilt, grab your hook and get to work on this Patchwork Quilt-Ghan. This tutorial on how to crochet an afghan so that it resembles a quilt is your ticket to a cozy embroidered quilt. Designed with intermediate crocheters in mind, this crochet afghan quilt pattern sticks to muted hues and subtle embellishments. The adorable flower accents on this project give this afghan a vintage look, while the haphazard geometric shapes give this afghan a modern edge.

Instructions:


Notes
1) Starting chain for colors (on charts) for each panel is made by reading from left to right across Row 1 of charts. Then when Row 1 is worked, from right to left, you will be working on the right side of the panel. The next row will be Row 2. Do this on all the panels at the beginning.
2) To change color work last stitch of old color to last yarn over, yarn over with new color and pull through all loops on hook to complete stitch.


Tips
1) Place stitch markers at the top of each panel to mark the top and right side. This will help in lining up the panels to be sewn together.
2) Embroider each panel when it is completed, do not sew panels together before embroidering.

I admire those two ladies who came up with this crochet quilt design for Caron. I love quilts but I don't like sewing. Now that I can make a quilt by crocheting, this is a dream-come-true. We're lucky we have the pattern just right on the same page. jbbrutusa2 said, at that time she made this comment thatt she'd give this a 5 if she can find charts 1-4. I think 1-4 is already included in the pattern so I'm giving this a 5. I will definitely make this afghan. This would be the ultimate. Thanks.

I was wanting to make this Afghan but where are the charts 1-4so I can follow them I would give this 5stars if you could include charts 1-4

How do I download or even bring up the charts. The only green arrows bring up an ad for National University. So please give a legitimate link.

where is the charts for this pattern
