Thinking Of Spring Crochet Afghan
"Thinking of Spring Crochet Afghan is helping me get through these winter days of cold weather and snow. I just love how the soft sage, off white, and rose yarns look together. Reminds me of new grass, tulips, and melting snow. This blanket has the perfect amount of coverage to keep the chill off without being bulky or heavy. Spring is right around the corner here and the lovely colors and lacy pattern are just perfect to cover me up as I dream of the Robins coming back and the Spring plants peeking through the snow and starting to bloom. Columns of double crochet and skipped stitches create pretty open squares that look like window panes. Add a block stitched border and one last round of the sage yarn to finish off the gorgeous blanket. If you compare the photo above where I just started adding on the border and the photo below where the border is complete…I just think the edging makes this entire afghan pop."
I started this using the no chain double crochet method. If this is new to you, I have a video tutorial to help you out
This blanket starts with 5 rows of rose yarn, 4 rows of soft sage, then 3 rows of off white. The color rows repeat throughout the afghan.
