Crochet 7 Day Sampler Afghan Stitch Along

Welcome to the 7 Day Sampler Afghan Stitch Along! I have a project that will motivate you to crochet and complete a nice sized throw in just one week’s time.

I was just playing around with my yarn when I crocheted a 10″ square. I hadn’t done a motif afghan in quite a while, but Michael always challenging me to be better and encouraged me to create more squares.  He knows me well, challenge accepted!

These motifs are easy to intermediate in skill level, but Michael’s video tutorials will help you along.  Also, each day, you will make 5 identical squares, so if you do them assembly line style, working all 5 squares at the same time, it goes even quicker since you don’t have to keep referring back to the pattern.

The motif have lots of different textures. As you work through each day, you will notice though that the squares are very consistent in design.  You will find as you go each day, that you will figure out easily what’s coming next and be able to speed right along the project.

I have completed 2 sizes of the afghan.  The full size is 55″ X 66″ and the baby size is 33″ x 44″.  The full size uses 5 of each motif, while the baby size uses only 2 of each one. One square will be release each day for 6 days, with the 7th day reserved for joining all the squares and the border.  Don’t be afraid, I have a fast and simple joining method you will just love.  But if not, feel free to use you favorite join and border to create you own look.

For these projects, I used Red Heart With Love yarn in 3 colors.  Don’t feel limited to using these yarns.  Bust out your stash yarn and see what you can create!

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
