A Crossed Panel Crochet Afghan


This free crochet pattern from Bernat Yarns features a unique textured double crochet stitch and a classic fringe. A nice crochet afghan will keep you warm through the winter. This afghan is an editorial team favorite of our large hook crocheted afghan patterns. Use worsted weight yarn to achieve this one of a kind look.  If you love to curl up by the fireplace and read a good book, this is the perfect afghan pattern for you.
