The motifs on this Mad for Tassels Granny Stitch Afghan are not only gorgeous but the colors are bright and cheery, too. You will use the granny and cluster stitch for this lovely and easy crochet afghan pattern.

All of these elements are great, but we have yet to mention the best part - tassels! The edging of your new granny stitch blanket are points that are then adorned with thick tassels. There's even a diagram below to show you how to cut them. This is a truly beautiful crochet afghan that anyone would want to have in their home.
