Crochet Study of Transition & Texture Afghan
The Crochet Study of Transition & Texture Afghan is a simpler textured-based project. As an educator, sometimes I just want to crochet for myself without the pressure. So I looked at the Red Heart Colorscape and thought to myself, what can I do with this yarn and satisfy my need to crochet without a lot of thought after I have learned the design and just hook and be happy in my own free time.
Pattern was updated on March 11, 2021. It may be slightly different than the video tutorial filmed 2 years ago but the concept is still the same. Pattern was updated to include row numbers for each section and crochet diagram was added.
Originally, I was just going to do criss-cross stitch for the entire afghan but I thought to myself, I’m more creative than that. So I thought to myself, after using 3 balls, what if I add a secondary colour and a different stitch pattern for that specific colour. Thus, I recalled the zig-zag basketweave from my childhood. I thought it’s an easy stitch to follow to satisfy my need to keep myself busy without pressure. So I figured, I would use 3 balls just for the new stitch and then switch back.
Essentially, I ran out of yarn for this project and placed an order on Yarnspirations.com so I could finish.
The afghan is in 5 visual sections. 3 of the sections are using Red Heart Colorscape Barcelona and the other 2 are using Shanghai.

- I would encourage you to move from ball to ball within the same colour to match. You don’t need to waste yarn. Insert it into the project where the colouring is close to the same.
