Afghan with Sleeves Crochet Pattern

By:

13 Comments

This free crochet pattern is an afghan with sleeves, cleverly called a "wrap-ghan" by Bernat Yarns. It keeps you warm with your hands free to read, sip a cup of tea or work the remote. Make your own sleeved blanket in colors to match your decor and get ready for the ultimate in relaxtion and comfort.  And don't be surprised if friends and family start requesting a "wrap-ghan" of their very own!

Crochet Afghan with Sleeves

Materials:

  • 6 (8) balls of Bernat® Super Value (Solids: 197 g/7 oz) (389 m/426 yds) yarn
  • Size 5.5 mm (U.S. I or 9) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge

 

Gauge:  12 sts and 10 rows = 4 ins [10 cm] in pat. 

Sizes:
To fit chest/bust measurements

  • Child Size: 24-32 ins [ 61-81.5 cm ] (1,910 yds of yarn*)
  • Adult Size: 34-56 ins [ 86.5-142 cm ] (2,670 yds of yarn*)

*To determine how many balls of yarn you'll need, if you're using different yarn for example, take the total amount of yds of yarn you'll need and divide it by the number of yds found in the yarn you'd like to use.  The resulting number is how many balls of that yarn it will take to complete the project.

 

Instructions:
The instructions are written for child size. If changes are necessary for Adult size the instructions will be written thus ( ).

I want to make this for a big guy - what adjustment would I need to make to make a little wider?

The garment is left open at the back. You could sew it up the back from the hem to the beginning of the armholes (to make sure that there is room for you to get into it) and then put buttons and small loops at the neckline and the top of the collar to close it. It is described as a blanket with sleeves, so therefore doesnt fasten at the back.

When you are working the main part of the body, at the point where you separate the front from the back sections you work 45sts and THEN LEAVE 11 STITCHES WHICH DON'T GET WORKED ON ANY MORE. The same is done at the opposite armhole. When you have finished working the sleeves, the stitches across the top of the sleeve are matched to the armhole section from the point where you separated the front from the back sections AND THEN WORKED 26.5CM ALONG EACH SIDE OF THE ARMHOLE. The side edges of the rows worked after the markers at the upper edge of the sleeve, are matched to the stitches left unworked when you split the body into the front and back sections. The underarm seam for the sleeve is then sewn.

I should have read all the comments made here before I used a half of a ream of paper printing out the directions! I'd like to make it but I'm afraid I won't be able to finish it without someone knowledgable sitting by my side.

I too am confused but only when it comes to assembling the sleeves. I love the pattern of this with the combination of DC and SC. I am going to try to combine this pattern with another one I found with simpler sleeves. If any can heads or tails out of the sleeves and how to assemble them to the main body please email me @ goldieprine@sbcglobal.net Thanks

I agree with Jay henderson 1/1/10. I am completely confused with the Front and Left Back. I've done the right back, but can't figure out where it goes. It makes no sense to me. I talked with 2 other people who also could not figure it out. What am I missing? Do you have any pictures of the afghan as it is being crocheted?

Would you tell me what "pat" means in this pattern. I would love to make it. Thank you perculator49@hotmail.com

I love this pattern and there are several different styles on a few other name brand sites. I'm currently crocheting one from another site and it is so easy to do. I'm making it striped in earth tones, it's coming out beautiful!

If you turned it around and made a belt wouldn't that be a bath robe?

I am totally lost on this project. At first I figured if the instructions didn't make sense, they would as I saw it come together. But, no matter how many times i re-read them, I can not make heads or tails of the second section Front With WS facing, join yarn with sl st to center 45 (61) sts. Cont even in pat until armhole measures 8 (10) ins 21.5 (26.5) cm, ending with a RS row. Shape shoulders Next row (WS). Sl st across first 10 (14) sts. Pat across next 25 (33) sts. Turn. Leave rem sts unworked. Collar Cont in pat until work from shoulder edge measures 3 (4) ins 7.5 (11.5) cm, ending with a WS row. Fasten off. Left Back With WS facing, join yarn with sl st to rem 35 (45) sts. Cont even in pat until armhole measures 8 (10) ins 21.5 (26.5) cm, ending with a RS row. Shape shoulder Next row (WS). Sl st across first 10 (14) sts. Pat to end of row. Turn. Collar Cont in pat on rem 25 (31) sts until work from shoulder edge measures 3 (4) ins 7.5 (11.5) cm, ending with a WS row. Fasten off. I find the main piece to be 'blocky', with squared corners, and no collar. Can anyone please help explain what I am not seeing? Are there pictures of how these parts look?
