Looks like an easy pattern to follow. With that being said though... the pattern says to repeat from * to * but there is nothing marking where this is. I may be misreading it and I am somewhat confused. Please help!


I have made this pattern three times now and I still don't have one for myself! Different family members saw it and they got them.

Where do color changes come? Once you say to join MC in step 3 there's no mention of any color changes and yet the afghan has an obvious vertical striping of color. How is that accomplished? Incidentally, there is nothing on the Bernat website about this afghan.

When do you change colors again in the 5th row or in the 2nd row? Do you work one set in main color and then work one set in contrast color. Just need to know which row to switch colors. Thank you.


Are these USA crochet terms or UK

For those wondering about how to work behind the stitches, you can most likely find some helpful videos on YouTube on how to do this stitch. You can also visit our friends at AllFreeCrochet.com to see if they can help you out with this tutorial.

on row four, when it says to work in front of your tr just made...is it supposed to be behind your tr just made? I'm confused on that part.


would red heart wool work with this pattern??
