Triple the Texture 12-Block Throw

By:

For an afghan that looks more complicated than it is, look no further. Three basic blocks, worked in different color combinations, are joined as they’re worked to make this 12-block throw. Each block pattern has its own texture: bobbles on one, openwork on a second, and smooth for the third. This Triple the Texture 12-Block Throw from Red Heart Yarn is an amazing free crochet afghan pattern.
