It's pretty obvious how this Rainbow Sherbet Afghan got its name - the bright colors will definitely remind you of the sweet frozen treat of rainbow sherbet. Bright and cool colors come together to create a visually appealing design that will add a pop of color to any room of your house. The funky zigzag design of this free crochet afghan pattern is fun to create. It's the perfect pattern to make for spring and summer months.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I found that the best method is to count your chains as you make them. Just insure that you have 6 chains between points. However, I am ending up with going 'up' at the end of the row, instead of down as the pattern seems to call for. (I hope that makes sense.)

I also am having problems with pattern. I can't get it to come out right. Iv'e checked for corrections but there aren't any. I love the colors and the pattern looks beautiful. Any help out there.

I have been trying to start this afghan and for some reason I cannot get it to work to the end I always am short stiches to complete the end and I do not have enough chevron points. Has anyone else had this problem or is it only me? Is 225 ch correct? I love it bought the yarn but can't get it to work.
