This beautiful and cozy looking red afghan will require just 2 balls of worsted weight (medium) yarn and your J hook. It has a nice skip stitch to it that just repeats row after row, giving you that mindless project you might be yearning for! Sometimes I need that myself. Why limit to just red, though? I like red with gray. Maybe I will color block it.

This is a fun easy pattern that works up beautifully in whatever color you need for your room.. I love to have this type of pattern to use in between the ones that require keeping track of rows and stitches. It could also be used to use up those skeins of worsted you have in your stash to make something multicolored.

There is something VERY wrong with this pattern. To start with, the weight of the yarn it requires is huge and requires an "S" hook. There's no way a J/10 hook can grab it. The yarn is so huge that I did the 128 chain stitches and it used the entire first ball of the yarn. Please update this pattern!

This pattern is very right. I am currently working it myself. I am not sure where you are getting an S hook from because its not listed for either the yarn mentioned above or the pattern.

This was the type of yarn in pattern. http//www.joann.com/big-ball-worsted-solid-yarn/1 == 0222859.html?gclid=CNnrx5208c8CFRB2fgod1bcN9A

Tried this craft? What did you think?

I know how to crochet some. I am just not confident in my work so I am beginning again. This project is great because I am relearning how to gauge my work, how to have my work even on each side and how to read a pattern better. I think I will complete this project. Thank you

I am not great at crocheting, but it's fun to do on those cold wintery nights when watching a movie or program on TV and you want your time to be productive. A few years ago I was fooling around with a crochet hook and some yarn, and made this exact throw without any books, instructions, etc, thinking I had come up with an easy pattern that anyone new to crocheting could do. This is truely a beginner's pattern. I've used the same stitches for making my daughter several scarves to wear with her coats, and because if you use a medium size hook and a soft but bulky yarn, the scarves come out with smiles on the recipient's face. I am currently making one more for her before she heads back to school at Marquette University in Wisconsin. Anything warm is appreciated there where as here in CA the need for scarves isn't that great unless you head to Yosemite and any other high mountain area. This stitch is very versitile and simple. I hope you who try it and are beginners have great success!
