The Crazy Cool Yo-Yo Crochet Afghan is a classic pattern with a modern twist. With the circular motif based off the popular yo-yo quilt design in sewing; this crochet afghan comes to life. Easy and fun, there's really nothing not to love about this crochet afghan. Choose bright and bold colors, like the green and blue pictured, and this vintage-inspired pattern will turn into a modern-day throw. Or keep it monochromatic for a more vintage look. Either way, this crochet afghan can easily fit into a contemporary or vintage home.

I'm pretty new to this crochet thing. Reading patterns sometimes confuses me. Can you explain this pattern to me with a video? Or perhaps respond to the part where it says "working across The opposite side of foundation chain"? I don't know exactly what you mean. Also, how do were join the strips together?

I like to find unique afghan patterns. I think giving afghans are wonderful gifts and to make them more special if I can find something that is unique that makes it all the better. This is a pretty color scheme but I think I will try a "feminine" color for my niece.

I think that yo-yo's are really cool. Like granny square, they can be so versatile. I read the directions and I am not really sure how these are not individual yo-yo's but I will soon find out. I am one of those that have to work the pattern to see how it works. Guess what I will be practicing today.

This looks easy. I want to do this. Good thing we have the pattern right on the same page so we don't have to search a link. This is also a very unique kind of afghan. For your reference here's the link to the crochet abbreviations http//www.craftyarncouncil.com/crochet.html
