    Mike why don’t you teach the tunisian Chervon stitch with ways to add color changes to it? Just a suggest.

    Is there somewhere where I could get color suggestions? I’m very bad at choosing which colors match. Thanks.

    My mother made me one of these plaid afghans from a kit back in the 70’s. It is various grays and a rusty-rose color. It does not have knotted tassels though. I still use it regularly and machine wash it and never has it pulled out. I think the yarn was a wool-acrylic blend that is a bit stiff, scratchy & pills which are the only factors against it. I have the original instructions but have not made one myself yet.

    This plaid afghan in holiday colors is beautiful. I like that there is more of an interesting plaid than mine. I will be making one for everyday use in colors that coordinate with the room it’s intended for. Thanks for the lovely pattern and the very helpful video Mikey.

    Also: I’d love to find out which acrylic yarns really wash well so things that take a lot of effort and time making don’t immediately pill and lose their color and softness qualities. Can you be objective or is there a website that would help?

    Me being more used to reading patterns than reading diagrams this one seemed a little difficult to read. Maybe. I just needed to see a legend.

      It’s just a double crochet and chain one between, Chain 4 on the turning chain for the chain one space between DCs. each row stacks on top of the one before, so DC’s in DCs, and chain 1 over chain 1. make sure you do an odd number of rows before you change colors.
