This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
Turn some heads with a free crochet pattern. The Stained Glass Afghan uses a stunning round crochet pattern that everyone will admire. With plum variegated yarn, this uniquely shaped blanket looks like a beautiful stained glass church window. The circle shape gives it a dynamic appeal that not many afghans have. Best of all, this is an easy crochet pattern that crocheters of all levels can learn to make. Don't be intimidated by its different design, this round crochet pattern is simple, yet gorgeous.
