I love this pattern! I have a bunch of camoflauge yarn that I have been wondering what I am going to do with. This would be such a great Fathers Day gift, which is coming up. I love handmade gifts there is nothing better to give someone you love! Thank you for the awesome pattern!

I don't know why men love the camouflage pattern but if that's what makes them happy id be happy to try it. I like that fact that the pattern only has very basic beginner crochet stitches so anyone can make this afghan with ease and if you can switch up the yarn if you don't fancy it

I'm not a big fan of camouflage but this is really nice especially with the coffee colored border. I know several people who would really like this. It looks quite easy to make too. The stitches gives it a soft appeal. There is a nice pink camo yarn that could be used to make one for those who like that color.

Love it making 2 of the.

Nice pattern but not all men like camouflage. Fortunately there are plenty of colours available.

Looks great can't wait to make it, I will make it for a lap throw, I belong to a prayer shaw Ministry and it's just the right size Ia'm looking for, thank you so much.Barbara

I make my afghans wider and sometimes longer so recipients can really cuddle under their afghan & have lots of coverage.

This is my first crocheted afghan and it was so easy! I used all 5 skeins of camo and the finished length measures 70" which is better for us tall people.

I don't come up with 85 stitches in 1st row. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? My chain is 87.

If I'm reading the pattern right the 3 chains that are next to the first dc counts as the first stitch when you go back and count all of the stitches.

The three skipped chains count as a stitch plus the first double crochet and the next eleven stitches that you double crochet which makes 13 stitches. Then you have 18 stitces four times which will be 72 stitches plus the 13 from the beginning which will total 85 stitches. Hope this helps.

I made a similar afghan by own design. Just double crochet and I made a wide border to frame it in. My nephews got one this past Christmas and love them. Worth every moment of my time.........Matching pillow would be a great addition to the afghan...Camo is easy and it hides your mistakes...haha..

I have made this afghan three times and love the way it looks. It is very easy and you can easily make it larger or smaller. I have also tried different colors and have had great sucess.

Can you tell me how many chains to make it wider? My email is:

Can you tell me how to make it wider? Do you know what the multiple has to be in?

The multiple is 18 chains if you wish to make it wider or not as wide.
