Juicy Fruits Afghan

By:

Great for those cooler summer nights, this Juicy Fruits Afghan is a great way to bring bright colors ( and a little warmth) into your home.  Made with brightly colored yarn, this crocheted afghan pattern also makes a great gift for teens and new apartment owners.  While this afghan just screams summer, you could really have it out on display all year long.  It would look great in a bedroom or living room.

Materials:

  • 4 skeins RED HEART® With Love®: yarn in Aran (A)
  • 1 skein RED HEART® With Love®: yarn in Hot Pink (B)
  • 1 skein RED HEART® With Love®: yarn in Mango (C)
  • 1 skein RED HEART® With Love®: yarn in Lettuce (D)
  • 5mm [H-8 US] Susan Bates® Crochet Hook
  • Yarn needle

 

Gauge: 2 shells = 4” (10cm) in pattern; 7 rows = 4” (10 cm).
CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

 

Special Stitches:

  • Beginning Cross-stitch (beg cross-st) = Dc in space after the sc and before the next 5-dc group one row below, ch 1, dc in space before the same sc and previous 5-dc group.
  • Cross-stitch (cross-st) = Dc in next ch-space after next sc two rows below, ch 1, dc in chspace before same sc.

Notes:

  • When instructed to work into a stitch or space “2 rows below”, work into the row numbered 2 less than the current row. For example, if you are working Row 5, a stitch “2 rows below” is in Row 5 – 2 = Row 3.
  • To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color.
