I love to crochet and I love to cross stitch as well. This is the perfect project. I can have the best of both worlds. It has been a while since I have even created any cross stitch so I think I will just make one square just to determine if I would like to have the whole afghan. If nothing else, I will have a great square to make a pillow with.

Beautiful. It is true what they say about classic pieces, they never go out of style. Because of the simplicity of this design this would still be a wonderful piece to add to your collection. The color choice is a little off for me, but I would easily change that and create this design in a heartbeat.

I like the colors used in this Fireside Afghan - light yellow background and with black design. Not keen on doing this project , though.

I have seen this type of afghan but never attempted it. I think it's about time that I did. After all, I am the grandma now. I would love to make something that I can pass down to my grand dUghter. I read thru it and it's not hard, I have done cross stitch and embroidry so I should be able to do it.

Oh darn, I wish your pattern had a picture. I clicked the get pattern link and found a stock picture on the antique crochet pattern site that this pattern was shared from. Wow. That is a very old pattern. Looks like it is from the 70s at least. These old patterns are a treasure to look at.

Hi Hippie Chick, I fixed the image issue on this page - it should appear now. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I dont think changing the name from Fireside Formality afghan to Fireside Style afghan is much of a change at all and shouldnt be that confusing. I like that these old patterns have been preserved and are still being shared for those of us that did not see them before. What a great find. I love looking at antique patterns and see all the old home dcor styles from their time period.

Why do you post old patterns with new names? The patterns don't change, it is confusing and misleading.

I don't know how to start it to make it chevron crochet. I still can not follow how to start it. I can crochet I have been making scarves, baby blankets and beanies. Can you show me in here how to start to make it curve? Thank you.

That is reall pretty!
