The stitch pattern used in this lovely striped afghan is sometimes called the "V" stitch. You just work ahead one stitch by skipping one and landing a stitch there, then you backtrack to the skipped space and land a stitch there. It creates the effect you see above. A robin's egg blue and the celery are oh so pretty together. The taupe as a neutral is a grounding color.

This is another project where the pattern is just right on the same page. Wonderful. There are three colors used in this project and for me it looks drab and gloomy but again there are crochet addict out there who will love the design and color combination. Thanks for this pretty afghan.

The description said "Simply spotted afghan" and I click on it and get an afghan that's stripes . . . who writes these descriptions?

Hi there, So sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks so much for pointing this out - we will be much more careful about project descriptions in future newsletters.
