Leaping Striped Blocks Crochet Afghan
The interlocking blocks on this Leaping Striped Blocks Crochet Afghan take the typical striped crochet blanket to a whole new level. The pattern has a faux chevron crochet pattern thanks to the up-and-down zig-zag of the stripes, and the way the stitches hug each other in this pattern really emphasizes the comfort of a crochet blanket pattern. The design can be expanded from preemie size all the way up to fit a king-size bed, so you can use this pattern to fit any afghan crochet need. There is also a video tutorial that shows you how to master the different crochet stitches that creates the blocked appearance, so you won't have to struggle through a new pattern alone.
