This afghan has a great look and the pattern has only a few simple steps to create the patterning in it. Using basic crochet stitches, this should work up fairly quickly depending on your skills. The colors are gonna be fun to work with to match my family room. I have worked a couple of inches of the pattern and have had no issues so far.

I love the look of this Herringbone Stripe Afghan. The pattern is well written and easy to follow and understand. This will make a great gift for my Grandson who loves home made gifts. I can see this one going with him forever in life. I'm looking forward to creating this beautiful crochet afghan. Thank you for the print tab and the pattern being right here on the same page, it helps. Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Love the shade of brown used in this Herringbone StrIpe Afghan. Perfect for the cream stripe combination. This can be an ideal gift for a boy who's going to college to use in his dormitory or to a dad for use at home on cold winter nights. Thanks for the free pattern.

Made this and it came out great. Everyone who saw it was impressed and asked where I got the pattern. Can't be better than that.

I need left hand pattern inst. to finish this one, on row 6 and can't go further..Help

'dtr' means 'double treble crochet'. It's the same thing as triple crochet

What's a "dtr" stitch? I can't find a list of special stitches on this page. . .

My guess would be to chain 192 to start (160 x 1.2 = 192). I would repeat 2nd - 13th rows 11 times instead of the 9 times stated in the instructions - see below. 13th row: As 2nd row. Rep 2nd to 13th rows 9 times more, then 2nd to 5th rows once. Do not turn at end of last row. I hope this helps.

I want to increase the size of the finished afghan by approx. 20% and am not sure how to figure the correct number to chain to begin. Any suggestions or formulas to come up with the correct number will be much appreciated.
