far, far, cry from an easy pattern!

Thanks for your feedback! We add difficulty ratings based on what the designer decides they are and, in the case of this one, what the average consensus is of the patterns difficulty on Ravelry. What would you suggest instead? Julia, AFCAP editor

Would you take a look at this summer swanage crochet afghan. I am finding it hard to believe that this level is considered easy. I have been looking for a project to complete for a neighbor and fortunately she has given me permission to make the final selection. I know she will be impressed.

This is impressive and a real piece of art. At first glance I knew that it was well over my skill level until I read over the directions. I am certain with the wonderful directions I could get this complete with a little time. Thanks so much for this free pattern.

The designer of this Summer in Swanage Crochet Afghan is very creative as she/he wanted to depict the local life in this English coastal by featuring the beach huts and sandy triangles through a very well crafted crochet pattern. Congratulations. I am so impressed with the design. Cheer!

I love this beautiful Summer in Swange Crochet Afghan. The pattern is well written with many stages to create a one of a kind afghan. I will enjoy doing the different stitches to make this, making it so un-boring. Thank-you for this beautiful free crochet pattern. #BestIdeaEver
