Crochet Healing Stitches XL Afghan is really just a bigger version of the original Healing Stitches Afghan.  I wanted to crochet a blanket that would be big enough for two people to share and cuddle together under and enjoy.

This version adds another 10″ to make is a really nice 68″ square.  I have a few weddings coming up this year and needed to get busy on some gifts.  I really think this will be a great present for the newlyweds.

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.

    Hi,
    Love this project and can’t wait to start. Problem is finding the colours that you have suggested, Red Heart with Love is not sold in stores in my area so I need to improvise. Any suggestions on alternate colours?

      I order mostly from Yarnspirations. I don’t know what the current stock is for these colors.
