This free crochet afghan pattern is from Caron yarn. It's an intermediate pattern that you can choose to make with or without fringe for an added embellishment. Three different colors of yarn are used.


  • Caron International One Pound 1 skein Color A (Ocean Blue)
  • 1 skein Color B (Gulf Blue)
  • 3 skeins Color C (Off White).
  • Size I (9) crochet hook.


PLEASE NOTE: Yarn usage may vary depending on your particular yarn techniques.


6 sts = 2". Be sure to check the gauge; it will save time!


Very important that you do this practice pattern. (Note: Ch 3 and turn at end of each row; the turning ch 3 is the edging row.)
With Color c, ch 25;
Row 1: (Foundation Row) Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. (23 dc)
Row 2: (Foundation Row - Back Side) Skp first dc (edging), * dc in each of the next 3 dc, turn work to right side, count back 3 dc just worked, yo, and draw up a long loop in base of this st, work a very loose dc. NOTE: (This long dc (LDC) forms the diagonal float across 3 dc sts over the right side of the work, but cannot be seen on the back side.) Turn to back side and repeat from * across. End row with dc in turning ch - (7 LDC).
Row 3: (V-Row - Right side) *3 dc in next 3 dc, past LDC, count back 3 dc just worked, work a LDC from back to front into same st as LDC in previous row, skp 1 at (top of LDC in previous row), repeat from * across. End row with dc in turning ch - (7 LDC).
Row 4: (V-Row - Back side) * skp 1 st, dc in next 3 dc, turn to right side, count back 3 dc just worked work LDC into same st as previous row (skipped st), turn to back side, repeat from * across.

It would be nice to see a bigger up close picture. I learn better by seeing than reading. Do you have tutorials we can watch?

One thing I never see is any reference to a "practice" pattern - so was very glad to see that one has been provided for this project. For me, it is imperative to practice a few rows of the project to ensure that I am capable of making the project and like the look of the project before I invest in the materials.


Hi Folks, Years ago I crocheted an afghan, but now can't figure out how to replicate it. Can anyone tell me how to find someone who could figure it out? Thanks much! Gail
