Crochet Mitered Ridges Afghan

Do you love thick, squishy blankets that are full of glorious texture?  Then you are going to love this Crochet Mitered Ridges Afghan that I just finished crocheting.  This hooks up really quick with #6 weight chunky yarn.  I used the Caron Chunky Cake yarn in colorway Trifle.  It only took 6 cakes to make this generous 46″ x 64″ afghan.

You can easily adjust the size as you would crocheting a corner to corner blanket.  You are working the first part as a solid square, then when it’s wide enough for you, just work on one side back and forth until you have the desired length.  Easy Peasy!

Another thing I’d like to mention is that this blanket is very solid and quite heavy.  For those of you looking for a weighted blanket, this is a good choice.

You can also substitute any size yarn, just match your hook size to your yarn and you’ll be good to go.
