The Crochet Checkerboard Afghan was presented in 10 parts as there are 10 different squares that work together. It’s hard to tell in the project. For the fun of it, we changed the colours to be more reflective of what we wanted to achieve.

We presented this as a 2-month summer challenge which we called Stitch-cation. I remember coming up with that name in spring over supper with our friend Colleen.

We presented this as a workbook format. The afghan on the front cover is the same but injected with Red Heart Super Saver colours.

    Hi Mike, Thankyou for this fantastic tutorial and pattern. I’m ready to make this rug as my next project, but I would really love to see a tutorial on how to crochet the borders, as the pattern is a little difficult for me to follow. Is it possible for you to please show us how you did the borders via another youtube video?
    I posted this question last night, but I do not see it displayed, so maybe I didn’t post it right.

    Thankyou so much!!!

      I’m sorry, the border hasn’t been filmed. I have to read each comment before it goes live. I’m about a month behind in responding. I’m sorry for the delay.

    Is there any video tutorial of how to crochet the borders for this stunning throw? I have bought all the woll and am getting ready to make to squares. but, just following the written patter for the borders is proving to be a little confusing for me/ Is it possible for you to please post a video for this? Thankyou so much for this absolutely gorgeous pattern and you fantastic video tutorials

      I haven’t filmed the border for this blanket. I don’t think there is one available. I’m sorry.

    Gorgeous!!!!! I can’t believe that you can create such gorgeous art form with just a hook and a wonderful creative mind.
    Congratulations you are an artist.

      Your stitches are so easy to follow along. I know this was a year ago, but i love watching the videos.
      Your a great teacher. Keep up the fabulous work.
