This crocheted afghan is a fun twist on a classic twist. Create a cool zig-zag pattern to decorate your home and warm you up. This is a great piece that is sure to add to your space. Plus, the cheery color is an absolute delight.

With the rust orange, soft gray, and creamy white, this ripple pattern is incredibly autumnal and rustic, though it would not look out of place in your home the rest of the year. This is an easy crochet afghan so most crocheters will be able to work this up without trouble.

Thank you so much for the pattern. If I want to make this wider, what is the pattern stitches for it. This calls for chaining 225. To make wider how many stitches for 12 inches more?

Hello! I am not sure how to make this wider but you might be able to leave a comment on the Bernat site and see if they can answer (http//www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/zig-zag-afghan.html). Or post something on our Facebook and see if the crochet community can help (http//www.facebook.com/AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns). There is also this article that explains how to change width (https//www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Crochet-Afghan-Tutorials/How-to-Increase-and-Decrease-Project-Width). I apologize I could not be of more help. Good luck! - Krista, Editor

I really love the look of crocheting in the back loop. The pattern creates ridges. I made my Christmas tree skirt using a pattern much like this. Of course, my pattern involved increasing to make each row bigger than the last. I definitely would like to use this pattern to make a blanket with the rippled look.

This white and orange afghan is so elegant with the arrow design. The matching orange and white throw cover adds to its class and appeal. The orange/white combination is very refreshing and invigorating. Thanks for sharing this pattern.

Thank you so much for the free afgan pattern Ij lost the one I had, and found I needed that pattern again.
