This pattern has been around forever, You can find several patterns for this around the web!  I have chosen to use the pattern and tutorial that was provided by Wink over at A Creative Being!!  She has a great eye for color and her photo tutorial is wonderful too!! So… Let’s get started!!  Here is what you will need to get started…

Head over to A Creative Being’s website to grab the instructions… and make sure you say hi while you are there!! Click Here for the pattern…

Next… Gather your supplies… Yarn, hook and other crochet necessities!

Then… Get Hookin’!!

Weekly Row Assignment…  Choose how large you would like your afghan to be and Complete 2 color segments… She has this listed in steps instead of rows… So it will be step one, then repeat step 2-5 twice for two color sections… Each section of color is a repeat of steps 2-5!

I cant wait to see how we do with our first couple rows… Make sure to email me you pictures for next weeks Crochet with Me segment!!
