Oh yes I need this! I have a old afghan my mother made me when I was young, (45 years ago). I have keepted this afghan in a trash bag because her little dog chewed a few holes into it and I had no idea how to fix it. Now with this How To Repair an Afghan I can fix it myself. It will be nice to have my first afghan in display and in use again. Thank you so much for sharing this free how to crochet item.

I have seen so many people including myself throwing these beautiful treasures away because it is hard to figure out a way to patch the hole with the pattern to look exact. I guess I should just do best you can and just patch.I always went for the exact pattern to follow in line and I see here with your you just repair best you can. I should have kept what I had. Are hats done with the same technique?

If all else fails try darning as if darning a sock. The hole will be repaired and the blanket will be usable again.
