1. To change color in the last sc of a row, work last sc of old color to last yarn over, yarn over with new color and draw through both loops on hook to complete stitch.
2. In the fifth row of the afghan pattern, single crochet stitches are worked into ch-1 spaces 2 rows below the current row. When working these single crochet stitches, take care to draw the loop of the single crochet up to the height of the current row. These single crochet stitches are to be worked over the single crochet 1 row below (into which you would usually work).

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—206 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn.
Row 3 (right side): Ch 2 (counts as first dc here and throughout), dc in next sc, *ch 1, skip next sc, dc in next 2 sc; repeat from * across, turn—138 dc and 68 ch-1 spaces.
Row 4: Ch 1, sc in each dc and in each ch-1 space across; change to next color in Color Sequence in last sc, turn—206 sc. Fasten off old color.

How about creating something special just for the man in your life. Shucks, being the Mom of boys and not a girl in sight, I am usually making things just for me. But every once in a while I have to spread the love.

This is just for the man of the house. I really could make him this because I seldom find anything I want to make for him. It is an easy pattern and I could probably have it ready before his birthday. Thanks for the free pattern.

Very nice. It isn't overly manly but it isn't feminine either. I can see this on my mans sofa in his office it's hard to find a pattern to suit a guy.i truly think he will like it. If not, it's mine! Thank you for sharing this pattern.

I love the color combination. I'm gonna make this simple but elegant blanket. Can also be a great Christmas gift. Thanks for publishing the pattern right in front for easy reference to crocheters.

I love it, but would like to make it just a bit bigger (wider). Could you tell me the multiples to increase by? Thanks.

I believe you would increase in multiples of 3..

How can I copy this to a jump drive so I can print it at home?

cuddle up worthy for my man!

I think the man-ghan has much more charactery and lends itself to your own creativity as far as color and richness. Just looks like you would want to cuddle with someone in front of a fire.

this one is nice

I love the way the stitches from one row to the next show. Very early american type and I love it.

Very Cozy looking, looks Earthy..

Looks warm and comforting - one of the few patterns that is not lacy or a fancy stitch....perfect for my son for his new house
