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.

Check out the video below to see another way you can create a chevron afghan pattern using three different colors!

This is a favourite so far. I made this 6 months after learning to crochet as a Christmas gift for my Mom and she loved it. I used 3 different shades of blue for an hombre effect. I really like the weight and the feel of it when it was complete. It turned out beautiful and I can't wait to make another one.

This looks like such a fun pattern! It'll show the colors off really well but it also has some amazing texture to it.

Lots of texture. Looks fun.
