If you're in a pinch for a housewarming gift, you'll love the Quick and Easy Jeweled Afghan. You'll probably be able to finish this granny stitch blanket in a day, maybe two depending on your skill. This crochet afghan is aesthetically pleasing and almost looks like strands of jewels. It will make a great addition to any room with its diverse colored squares. The crochet blanket is basically a giant version of a granny square, which makes it extremely easy and incredibly fast to work up.

This would make a great house warming gift, but it would have to be for someone that is really close to me and that would appreciate the time and effort it takes to make an item such as this, otherwise they get the usual standby of mine which is placemats and coasters. LOL

This is exactly what I have been looking for as my next project of a blanket and I have everything I need to make it so I will not need to buy anything as far as I know.

Jewelled afghan indeed! The colors are so rich and sumptuous and it is going to be so beautiful on our new sofa. I am going to replace the Grass color with something else simply because it will not be great with our color scheme but other than that this design is just perfect. It also looks good enough to get cozy under on chilly days so is going to serve a practical purpose too.

Im always in a pinch for a last minute gift so this caught my eye. Not sure that I could finish such a large project in a day even though I crochet pretty fast, but glad to see that it can be finished so quickly. Love the color combos, but all the different colors leave yarn ends that need to be sewed in after the project is complete also.

This is a nice classic looking afghan. Instead of making many granny squares all you do is make one huge, gigantic one! Any colors will do. But tonal would give it an air of sophistication. It's a great project for beginners to get practice in color changing and stitch tension.

Yes, I agree with the others that this would make a great housewarming gift but, usually when I need a housewarming gift it is at the last minute that I realize I need one or I get a last minute invite. Much too late to be able to make something so time consuming as an afghan.

can you make a video

This is so beautiful. I agree, this will make for a great housewarming gift. The lady of the house will definitely love this 6-color afghan. Thanks for having the pattern right on the front page. Appreciated. This is on queue in my projects list.

I love the shape of this afghan. I've been looking for a pattern that uses the granny square principle in a shape other than square lol. This is going to make a great cover for my full sized bed, and what's better, it'll make a great rug pattern for thicker yarn. Definitely a good pattern to memorize for several possible projects.

have you made this is it easy
