Need an afghan and quick? Check out the Marvelous Mile a Minute Afghan Pattern! It'll take you next to no time to crochet and will look fabulous when you're finished.

Not only is this an easy crochet blanket pattern when you're in a time crunch, but it's extremely versatile, too. Quick crochet projects very rarely are so neat.

Pick bright colors to make it pop in the room, or keep it neutral if you want to add a subtle and elegant touch. You can't go wrong with this beautiful crochet afghan.



Crochet afghans like this one get their name from the location where they originated: in Afghanistan. The word "afghan" came into the English language in the 1700s as the Persians used to call the Pashtuns by this name, who lived in what is now eastern and southern Afghanistan. 

Afghanistan is well known for its textiles today like carpets and karakul wool, which can be used for crochet afghans. This crochet afghan, which is a mile-a-minute afghan, is just one of the many variations that you can find. Other styles include join-as-you-go afghans and motif afghans. 

If you need to make a crochet afghan fast, you'll want to choose a mile a minute pattern like this one. Motif afghans can be fun because you can choose a single motif in different colors or multiple motifs that fit together to form one wonderful crochet afghan. Similar to motif afghans, the join-as-you-go crochet afghan is about joining squares together as you make them.

We all know that afghans and throw can take quite a lot of time to make and with busy lives, working and raising families, time is most often exactly what we do not have a lot of. Quick and easy patterns are all the better to find, then, and when they look as good as this one it is like a double bonus! Our youngest daughter has already told me which colors she wants hers in and now she has told her brother. Seems I will be making two, lol!

Another mile-a-minute afghan. You may change the colors according to your taste and preference. It helps that the pattern is just right on the same page. Thanks.

This is a great pattern , I have made this many times!


It says on the main page that is EASY, then when you go to the pattern, it say intermediate. So what is it suppose to be?

So I'm assuming that "Repeat row 3 until piece measures" means to repeat row 2?

clicking on the link for the pattern goes nowhere; I hope you will fix it soon.

This looks just like the patterns Leisure Arts have been publishing for 20 years or so....not a NEW pattern!

I agree with you, I have been making this afghan for many years. I will have to look at the pattern in Leisure Arts and see if it is the same designer.
