The Crochet Checkerboard Afghan was presented in 10 parts as 10 different squares 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.
- Crochet Clapboard Blanket Pattern
- Crochet Aran Hearts Throw Stitch Along
- Crochet The Study of Texture Blanket Pattern
- Crochet Hibernate Blanket Pattern
- Crochet Mandala Stitch Along Pattern
We had this workbook back in 2014 for this stitch-along. It's the same pattern, it's just coloured with scrap yarn. Some links inside the e-Book are obsolete as the book cannot be edited as it's 10 years old and made with different technology. Just use it as a reference point.
Over 730 entries were received with this afghan sample. Some people really blew us away with a lot of advance thought of planning colours. See the Stitch-cation (Checkboard Afghan) Gallery.
