Check out this free crochet afghan pattern by Caron for the Peruvian Afghan. With its understated color scheme of creamy white and bright blue, this crochet afghan pattern looks like it belongs at the beach. Make this beautiful blanket for yourself with this intermediate crochet afghan pattern. This gorgeous blanket has a fun fringe border, too. It's a great way to remind yourself that even if you're snuggled up indoors, warmer weather and days at the beach are on the way.

If you find this project boring to do because there's no excitement in the colors, then you may change the colors to make it more exciting.

If I chain 25 and stitch in the 4th chain from hook, that leaves 20 stitches, not 25. Explain please
Jan 19, 2018
Im not sure where you are looking that says to do this. The only place I see chain 25 and then to stitch in the fourth chain from hook is the first row. That row ends with 23 stitches, not 25. There is nothing wrong with that row. It works out perfectly.
