You would think that this granny stripe afghan is so simple but if you look closer, the yarn used is actually variegated. It's so beautiful. This afghan is suited for a rocking or wheel chair. Grandma will love this piece on her wheelchair.

So I've never used the multiple strands before, but I've been crocheting for years, so I'm excited to give this a try. If I'm reading this right, I can mix and max brands that may not be the exact same thickness, right? Like Caron Pound and Caron Simply Soft and Big Twist Sincerely?

It's very pretty and yes very easy, for someone like myself who has been crocheting for years. But to a beginner, telling them to use four strands of yarn at the same time can be very daunting. I know it was for me years ago. The balls of yarn got tangled, my wrist got sore, but I did learn.

Quick patterns are great to have handy and on standby for when a gifting emergency comes up. I have a few stand by patterns that I use that can be made up rather quickly for unexpected times that I might want to give a friend a little thinking of you gift. This afghan could work to help use us your stash yarns or yarns you found on clearance that you really arent sure what to do with.

Wow, I've never tried using four strands at one time. A Q hook would be a good size. This could be a fun project to try. The stitches are certainly easy. I'd probably make this for my 85 year old mother. It would be something she could wrap around her knees or shoulders as it gets cool in areas of her house during the winter months. As long as each color is the same ply I would consider combining different colors just to experiment and see how it comes out. That would be fun.

I love quick and easy patterns. This pattern offers both, with multiple colors of yarn and a really big crochet hook. I am wondering though the pattern says to use 3 strands of worsted weight and 1 strand of sport weight yarn. How much would it alter the pattern if you were to use all 4 strands of worsted weight yarn? I do not usually keep sport weight yarn on hand, but I have a ton of different colors of worsted weight.

I love stash busting time. I usually find small quick projects to use up my stash and have never made an afghan with it. 32 x 46 is quite unusual for an afghan size. This is a pretty pattern, but it requires a lot more yarn than what my entire stash is made up of. Ill just save this pattern until I collect more yarn.

I am not a fan of four strands of yarn but reading the comments I can use bulky. It looks like a good stash buster as well. Living in NYC and the change in seasons a afghan like this is always welcome. The pattern is easy and should work up quickly. Thank you.

I really like this afghan pattern but the look of the combined 4 strands of yarn just did not work for me so I have make it using bulky yarn instead so that I can better determine the color. The finished item is really nice, the pattern is very easy and simple to follow and I have already started making another one for our eldest sons room.

There is really no wrong way to use up your stash at home with this "Quickest Granny Stripe" crochet afghan. The pattern creator provides us with many different ways to use many different weights of yarn. You can't go wrong! I love how the thumbnail pic looks like the afghan is all speckled. Neat pattern using the basic principal of a granny square.
