Navajo Inside Diamond Afghan
We are adding the pattern to your Crochet Patterns.
The pattern was added to your Crochet Patterns.
"I have made many Navajo afghans and tried something different. Colors are yours to choose from. You can fill in small diamonds by replacing Sc to Dc. Each row took around 20 mins, total time around 3 months. I am not the fastest crocheter so it took me longer. This size will fit a twin bed, planning on using it in the camper to cover a love seat. Each large diamond is 22 Sc long, so add that to increase the width or decrease to shorten."
NotesColors are to your liking, pick something that you would like to be together, like spring or fall colors, team sport colors, high school college. Traditional navajo colors are black, red, grey and white, but specializing it is what makes the pattern fun.
