Crochet Afghan

This Crochet Simply Soft Stripes Afghan is made up of 3 panels. The panels are full of texture. There’s a lot of learning possibilities for mixing up some great stitches.

The idea that compels me with this afghan is that you can make an afghan without having to be buried under it halfway through the project. It makes it easy ‘hooking on the go’ without having to pull out a mega project from your yarn bag.

All of the panels are easy to master once you under the repeating stitch which is pretty simple. Once you get that, you will have this afghan licked!

Follow the tutorial below for all three panels that are made in this project.

    Hi again, maybe this had been picked up but in the shells and popcorn panel there is no mention of popcorn stitch.

      I’ll have to circle back another time to glance the pattern in more detail. It’s possible they refer to the popcorn as a cluster or bobble. I’ll have to find more time to give it a glance.

      In the written pattern, no popcorns. They are, however, in the video. So, boo to oversight of the pattern but hooray that there’s a video! Frogged four times and now, heck with written pattern. As for length, I just make all panels equal. Lovely pattern – enough to print errata! Thanks.

    Hi, are you able please to tell me, for each of the strips, what the stitch multiples and plusses are, I’d like to make each larger. Thank you

      I’ll have to redraw the diagrams again another time so I can figure that out for you. I have to pencil in a couple hours to do that but I don’t know when yet. I’m sorry.

  3. In the video doesn’t say how long are the panels and how to stitch them together

    • Mikey

      Let me read the pattern. Be right back.

      • In the first panel the weave basket says rep 3rd to 6th 26 times then 3rd to 5th row once. It’s confusing I want to know how many rows total its 26 rows all together.
        Then the panel post and shells and panel shells and popcorn says its rep 3rd and 4th 54 rows or how many rows all together including with the first row. I’m Spanish speaking and I’m better with diagrams than written patterns. I love this pattern and it’s easy to crochet I’m having difficulty in the number of rows. I just finished the the Crochet Stich Sampler afghan and it was so easy to follow cause of the diagram.

        Thank you so much

    I was looking for the diagram for the Crochet Simply Soft Stripes Afghan. I clicked the link and it took me to a chevron pattern? If you would like the PDF of the diagram I used in this video. You can get it here. Is the diagram still available?

    • I’m not sure why it was doing that, I added the blue pattern button that will take you to where you can get the pattern, sorry about the confusion, it had me a bit stumped myself haha.
