Earth Toned Crochet Afghan

Earth Toned Crochet Afghan

With this free crochet afghan pattern you can make an Earth Toned Crochet Afghan. Using neutral colors that can easily match your home decor is a great way to add a little design to any room. The half double crochet stitch was used in panels making this a quick afghan to work up.


Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

: Each panel is crocheted using a full skein of yarn. If you're making an afghan with 9 panels, you need 9 skeins of yarn. If you're making a larger afghan with 11 panels you'll need 11 skeins of yarn and so on.


  • 9 skeins Worsted weight yarn (approx. 170 yards each)
    • Vanna's Choice in Dusty Blue, Beige, Taupe (or choice of color)
  • H hook
  • Darning Needle


Chain 13 and turn.
Row 1: HDC into second stitch from hook then into each stitch across row, chain 1 and turn (12 sts).
Row 2: Repeat row 1 until the skein runs out to create your first panel. Continue to do the same with all your panels.


Join panels using whip stitch or any stitch you wish. Every stitch to join will create a different look for your afghan, so it's just a matter of what look you're going for.
Weave in ends.

Note: If panels are slightly different in length you can either leave as is or pull out a few rows to make them even. Here are some choices on how to join panels in a crochet afghan.

I think that some of you are being very cruel. Think back to your first afghan, would you have had the nerve to ask the world to critique it? I could hardly stand to look at the first one that I made 40 years ago, yet I keep it as a reminder of how much I have learned and improved over the years. As for the colors, it is a personal matter of choice based on your own decor and tastes and no one has the right to criticize that. Do not let the negative comments get you down. The longer you crochet, the more you can learn and the better you will get. Keep trying new things and learning new skills, even if you are just practicing them on dishcloths to get them right. There isn't a one of us that hasn't got something left to master, so cuddle up in your first afghan and enjoy it. Crochet is a great hobby, and one that you can enjoy for many years to come.

I think this came out fantastic for your first should've seen my 1st afghan, I still blush when I think of it. :) I like the colors you picked out very much, subtle and serene. Good Job!

The colors show up on my monitor/computer as somber greys and muddy blue - kind-of depressing. Also, the rows don't seem to line up very well. I would use the dk. grey, then electric blue or bright purple, lt. grey, electric blue or bright purple and dk. grey. Repeat for size desired ending with dk. grey. For a retro-50's vibe try bubblegum pink. Really, any bright color will look great with greys. Finally, I would use the "Half Double Crunch Stitch" as my pattern stitch. It gives a lovely texture and is so nice to the touch.

Does anybody know what the dimension of the final project is when the 9 panel pattern is used?

While the I do like the colors, I do not think this is the best looking the very least, it should list chain 2, not 1 at the beginning/end of each row due to the HDC being used. A border would look really good on this as well, perhaps something using all three yarns at once around. It adds a nice border and ties the colors together.

what is the dimension of the final project when 9 panel pattern is used?

i am underwhelmed by this offering. Who gave it so many stars and why? surely a test to see if we are paying attention! Yikes!!!

I am not crazy about it. I think it's too simple looking. The colors are drowned out. And the outline looks a mess. I would have to tweek this design.

The colors are fantastic! What a beautiful afghan. Nicely Done! A++ Have a Happy Creative Day! T =)
