Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am a seasoned crocheter but don't understand the instructions. Am stumped at "Cut off remaining chain, do not turn." Am I supposed to actually use scissors to cut off the portion of chain not used??? Have never heard of anything like this. And, once this is done, I have no idea how to start the second row without turning my work. Is there a video that shows how to make this afghan? I searched youtube with no luck. Thanks.

The instructions state you are to work the stitch across to a specified length in that chain - not the count of the stitches. When it gets wide enough, you stop, get rid of the extraneous chain stitches, then go back to the other side, and do the next row. Cutting off the extra chain makes for a neater result

I like this pattern for the Navajo Afghan. After reading the pattern I see that is very interesting that you are adding and subtracting stitches through out the afghan. This makes a pretty looking pattern. The colors are go well together too. I can't wait to try this afghan pattern. Thank you so much for sharing this free pattern.

I like the color combination of this Navajo Afghan. I've always loved the colors, gold/black/off white combination in anything. Here's the link to the pattern http// == ghan-pattern.html.
