Are you ready for some crocheting?? I am, and I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!! I’ve purchased my yarn,,, Designed the Afghan and whipped up the first week of the project…I thought I better get ahead, start to work out any kinks and make sure it will be a fun and easy pattern! So here we go!!! First I will list the materials needed,,,Then the stitches we will be using so you can be prepared… Don’t worry… These are all basic stitches and combinations of stitches to make some really fun textures! If there is any slightly tricky areas,,, I will post photo tutorials!! Also tonight,,, I will post a few thoughts about the afghan…

Thoughts about our upcoming CAL Afghan:
This afghan can be made using scrap yarns or a specific color scheme. In either case you will need one main color through-out (the neutral or dominate color) and 2-4 other colors.
You can use an optional size hook such as G-K depending on how you like the drape of your Afghans… I like using an I Hook, but feel free to use what you like. Keep in mind this may change the overall size of the project.
This afghan will be an average size throw, but it can be made smaller by ending at any point your prefer.
