Textured Tiles Afghan
This crochet afghan looks hard to make, but it is actually SO easy! It's made using our signature sc in back lp and dc in front lp of st 2 rows below..similar in technique to the old-time vintage Native American Navajo afghans. Color changes are at beginning of rows, so you are only working with one color at a time. Clever placement of the dropped dc stitch forms the intricate-looking design. Check out the video on my website to see just how easy this technique is. Instructions given for adult, baby and child size afghans.
