Thanks to Lion Brand for sending fabulous yarn for this project!

Color Block Afghan Square - Afghan Crochet-a-long

Here’s how it is going to work:

  • Every day (M-F) a new square pattern will be posted on one of our ten blogs. 
  • You can join in the fun by crocheting each day’s square on that day whenever you have time.
  • Share your progress and post photos of your squares in our facebook group.
  • By the end of the Crochet Along you will have twenty 12″ squares all ready to be pieced together into a beautiful afghan just in time for the holiday season.
  • Finally, we will be hosting some fabulous giveaways! You could win Lion Brand yarn to make your own afghan, $100 CASH money, OR our COMPLETED AFGHAN! That’s right, we are going to be piecing all of our squares together and shipping an afghan out to one very lucky winner.

  1. I love your color block granny square for afghan, but I don’t see a button to click on so I can print the picture and pattern without all the extra advertising and pictures of your other patterns and posts. I can see and read them on your website but I don’t want all this extra stuff printing. I’ve tried the copy and paste method but that just prints off the text and not the picture. Please help! P.S, Below where I type in my name and email there’s a box that says ‘website’. I’m putting in your particular website where I/m seeing the pattern but I.m not sure if that’s what you’re looking for. I don’t have a website.

    1. The “website” box is optional can you can leave it blanket :) And I am terribly sorry, but I don’t have a PDF for this particular pattern. I can whip one up for you! I will put it on my to-do list.

  2. Are rows 31 & 32 supposed to be identical? Or is that an oops? Thanks for the pattern, just trying to make sure I’m reading it correctly!
