So pretty! I love every single one of these.


I am looking for a crochet pattern for a baby in the shape of a star for A Dallas Cowboy fan. Any suggestions?

I am looking for a tunision sampler afghan. the squares were made using different patterns, I know there was an "X", a puff st, one square just with the purl st, there were about 5 or 6 different patterns. I started this, but then lost the pattern.

This site is way too busy

yes it more time clicking than finding anything.

Desperate for directions and pattern for crochet afghan in tunsian stitch with bargello pattern and colors. A afghan kit would be ideal. Expense no issue. Would like best yarn suggested for this project.

Hi, aaaram 7710351. We have many free afghan patterns available! Here is a link: http://www.allfreecrochet.com/?task=search&search_term=afghan You might also be interested in our sister site, AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns. Enjoy! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

aaaram, any pattern using single crochet can be converted to tunisian stitch. I am going to check out the recommended site because I also would love to do the bargello pattern.

Tunsian is also known as the afagan stitch. I hope this is of some help to you.

it said but will not let me in not everyone has a cellphone

I cannot get rid of the ad that is blocking any of the links I am wanting to access to print out patterns. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING YES i am logged in.

I was able to find Mile a Minute afghan books at my local library. Another option is to use scarf patterns to make your strips. I'm in a CGOA Chapter in Pittsburgh, Three Rivers Crochet, which has made afghans for donation to our local VA programs, that consist of strips we've made and then sewn together (or you could use crochet for the assembly). It's so much easier to assemble strips than individual squares. The yarn we used was left over from making scarves for the Special Olympics. You can see some of the scarves we are making this year on our website (just search for Three Rivers Crochet and you'll find photos on our blog). (I've also used afghan patterns to create new patterns for the scarves I'm making!)

@lkelleycrafts: I suggest you browse our sister site, AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns.com (http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/). They may have the pattern you are looking for! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochet

I am looking for a crochet afghan pattern that is completed in strips (side to side) having base rows, shells (scallops) and sewn together. Each strip is sewn leaving the shell free to overlap the next row. Any help is greatly appreciated.

In answer to Kimby, the "fr hk" means "from hook"
