Crochet Christmas Trimmings Afghan

This Crochet Christmas Trimmings Afghan is my Christmas in July gift to you!

This is my first time creating a project especially with a Christmas theme in mind. I decided to go with a vintage feel with the colors of Red Heart with Love that I have chosen. I wanted the blanket to have the look of garland on a tree or a pretty wrapped present that would sit under it.  There is lots of lovely texture in this generous sized throw that will look great with your holiday decor.

If you would like a square version of this design, take a peek at by Sweet Pink Baby Blanket Pattern.

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.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
