It’s funky and filled with 7 different motifs to bring your Stitch-cation afghan to life.
Afghan is 35″ wide by 52″ long.
If you are in the Stitch-cation Challenge, be sure to follow the guidelines if you would like your finished afghan to be in our finished community gallery.
Stitch-cation is a pattern mash up of motifs found from two different free patterns found on Yarnspirations which include the Tucson Throw and Lenox Throw designed by Treva G. McCain for Caron Yarns. To make it even more spicy, Mikey has created two additional motifs for this design.
There are 6 large motifs in this design plus 1 small connector motif that is seen between the octagon motifs. For the Stitch-cation afghan, crocheters are to make 4 of each of the large motifs plus 15 of the small connector motifs.
The biggest tip of all for these is in the way that each of the motifs are connecting in the last round. I would complete all of your motifs with not doing the final round for each. I would then lay it out to figure out where you want your motifs in your afghan. Then strategically complete the last round so that it will join to it’s neighbour. The very first large motif you do must be done completely so then next motifs begin joining to that one.
You can be strategic on where you place your motifs or just be completely random like our finished example.
The small connector motifs are the last motifs to be crocheted into position.
The pictures below show each of the motifs completely done for you to visualize but the final round should be joined to the neighbour. Those instructions have been included in our eBook as well as each video tutorial.
