Free Pattern: Crochet Christmas Wave Afghan
Christmas Waves Throw will measure approximately 59″ across by as long as you want it. 1 ball of Bernat Holiday Yarn will take you about 5″ of length.


Size K Crochet Hook or 6.5 MM


1 Ball = 5″ in height – Bernat Holiday Yarn 100 g or 3.5 oz balls and Bernat Super Value Yarn 197 g or 7 oz Balls. Colour used was Super Value White and Red & Green from Bernat Holiday Yarn. I recommend 6 balls each of the Red & Green and 2 or 3 of the Super Value White. The Value white is only 1 line across.

Decide your length in inches and divide by 5. This will give you the amount of balls you need. Afghan design is 59″ across.

This pattern is in sets of 14 chains. Meaning that 14 chain stitches between the repeat of the pattern exists. In the afghan shown, there is 15 sets of 14 chain stitches. At the end of the line, you will add 2 chains.

  1. Chain 14 = 1 set, repeat Chain 14 over and over until you get your desired width. This aghan has a total of 15 Sets. At the desired length, add 2 stitches.
  2. Skip 2 CH (counts as 1 DC), 2 DC into the next CH, * 1 DC into the next 3 CH, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, 1 DC into the next 3 CH, 3DC in the next 2 chain. Repeat from * all the way to the end. End last stitch with 3DC.
  3. CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), 2 DC into the 1st stitch. *1 DC into the next 3 stitches, Using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG, using next 3 stitches create DC3TOG. 1 DC into each of the next 3 stitches, Next two stitches get 3DC each, repeat from * all the way to the end. Final stitch ends with 3DC.
  4. Chain Colors as often as you want. You can eliminate or add more colours.
  5. Repeat step 2 and 3 until you get your desired length.
  6. Fasten off.

  1. Love the pattern but I really like printing my patterns to take with while I travel. Is there any way to print your patterns

    • Technology for downloadable PDFS came way late into our existence. We still have about 100 patterns to convert to PDFS. Usually, if I have circle back, I can do it. We can only go in back steps as it can take an hour or more to do one pattern in this format. I’ve learned to write patterns better since the beginning, so it usually involves a re-write.

    • Highlight the pattern with your mouse then right-click and select print. I did and it fit on one page. Hope that helps!

  2. Hi Mikey! I came across your Christmas Wave Stitch but I want to use Caron Simply Soft in 3 other colors and I do not know how to go about changing amount of yarn to buy and how many chain to make. Caron being the 6 oz skeins and using an H hook how do I go about things? I appreciate all of your help. Thank you.

  3. So many cute things! Two questions:
    1.As a beginner “leftie” do I still follow the directions as they are? I am crocheting a scarf (double crochet) and the sides go in and out. Should I count each stitch on each row? I seem to be going more by sight.
    2. How much yarn to make a lap afghan and size. Would like to make for a friend who is in a wheel chair.
    Thank you!!
