Crochet Good Vibrations Afghan Pattern

Good Vibrations Afghan will get your crochet hook addicted to some fun!

I wanted to make myself a new heavy bed topper with some of my favorite yarns.  Michael shared this stitch with me from Sampler Blues Afghan he recently crocheted. I thought it would be a fun stitch to work from the middle.  When I showed him what I created, he said it reminded him of waves of a speaker system, so hence the name, Good Vibrations Afghan!

Warning, this is a thick textured blanket and a yarn eater.  I think self-striping cake yarn would be perfect for this one.  I’m hoping to see someone crochet this in rainbow color too!

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.

I have marked up the pattern and simplified it for tutorial reasons. It’s the same pattern as Jeanne’s but slimmed down with extra notes added to it.

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.
