Why AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns Loves this Pattern

We here at AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns see a LOT of afghan patterns, but the Happy Harlequin Crochet Afghan definitely sticks out as a favorite in our minds. It incorporates all of our favorite crochet afghan pattern traits into one easy pattern: it's easy to make, it's full of texture and color, and you can use up the yarn in your yarn stash.

First, let's talk construction. This is a join-as-you-go crochet afghan pattern, but you can work up the center of each of the little granny square bits separately and then work on joining everything together in the final round, in another color. The portability of any blanket pattern is key because this way you'll be able to work on it in more places and in shorter bursts.

Then, we have the pattern itself and the joining round, which adds some fun texture and interest to an already fun pattern, plus the striped ripple border, because why not add another stitch pattern to the mix? 

Our favorite part of this crochet afghan pattern, though, is the room for color exploration. Because there are so many little parts to this pattern (the center of each granny square part, the outer rim of the squares/the joining round and the final striped ripple border), you can go as crazy with color as you want.

It's easy to copy this afghan's color palette and use up stash yarn to create an ombre rainbow effect, as pictured, but you can also stick to a more limited color palette and still have a gorgeous and fun afghan. Because this crochet afghan pattern has the potential to be as fun and out there as you want, it's absolutely high on our to-make lists.

Harlequin afghan because harlequins entertain people. Like this afghan, it entertains because of the vibrant colors used and it also tends to entertain. Nice!

HOW HAPPY! I love color - it puts me in such a good mood.

I love patterns from the Felted Button! Her color choice is always so on point. This one in particular is beautiful!

I'm unable to gt the pattern. Even when I click on the link there is no pattern, just comments and pics smh

When making a scrap afghan can you use different yarn - wool, cotton etc

I would have liked to get this pattern but I didn't want to get another newsletter to get it. Thanks but no thanks.
