This Gorgeous Crochet Afghan Square Is a Burst of Colors! – [Free Pattern]
Yes, it’s absolutely beautiful!
With colors galore and a rich and pleasing texture — thanks to the crochet popcorn stitch — this 9-inch afghan square is ideal for those long-form projects; afghans, blankets, throws, and the like. It would also make a very striking potholder or a trivet.
How about a tote bag? Garments too; a coat, a long cardigan sweater or a poncho. You name it, and it’s achievable. The recommended yarn is Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Solids, Heathers & Twists which you can buy at Amazon (paid link) — if you’d like to keep the color scheme as seen above. But it’s also great as a stash buster. You could use up some of those bits of yarn here and there and create a wonderful work of textile art.
Yes, this pattern is a winner and it’s free! It’s the “Tequila Sunrise 9” Afghan Block by designer Margaret MacInnis of Designs By Muggins. It’s posted at Ravelry as a free download where it’s proven to be very popular. When you visit the page you’ll see lots of finished projects in a beautiful and inspiring array of colors.
