I love this granny square afghan! It's beautiful, especially with so many color changes.

Im loving this pattern, but my corners are really bowing out giving the blanket an hour glass shape. I couldnt figure out why this was happening, until I looked closer at the pattern. It's written for 4/worsted weight yarn (Bernat Super Value) and Im using a 5/bulky weight (Loops Threads Powdery), with a 6.5mm hook (it's what the yarn calls for). I'm trying to figure out the best way to alter the pattern to prevent the "out of shape" corners. The directions for the corners are 3dc, 3ch, 3dc in each 3ch corner. Would changing the corners to 2dc, 2ch, 2dc fix the problem? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am having the same problem. I didnt realize that the yarn would make that much difference. I used the size hook recommended but I used red heart super saver yarn. Did you get a resolution? Thanks

I like this Quick and Jeweled afghan for its design, the colors used and the total look. It would look great on top of the living room sofa.

I would love to make this but not so many colors. A little confused as to how much yarn is needed. What is the total?

I went through and calculated that yarn amount for you.Using Bernat super Value skeins in. 6 different colors - ea skein is 426yds and you want. 2 of each color - your total yardage would be 3,512 yds. So if you decide to use another brand make sure you have 852 yds of each color again for a total of 3512 yds. The afghsn is a large afghan taking a lot of yarn - afghan size is 60 x 77 . Good luck.

Wow what a cool looking afghan, this Quick and Easy Jeweled Afghan is stunning. I like that you crochet on the other side of the chain to make a rectangle shaped afghan. You don't turn your work and just keep crocheting around to make this afghan. I'm looking forward to making this one but will be making it with a cheaper yarn or even use up my scraps. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet afghan pattern.

This is a very pretty and colorful afghan from Yarnspirations. It is called the Granny Blanket on their website. The materials to complete this project will cost you a total of around $50 if you purchase from their website, but I am sure you can find it for less if you hit a sale at a local yarn store.

i printed this pattern but using 5mm hook and medium wool doesn't work out to 60x77 inches with only 59 sticthes chained,am i missing some thing,can anyone help me with this,i want to make it for my sisters birthday

This is a stunning beginner afghan. The beauty comes in by switching the colors at the end of the rounds. If the colors are not your thing, it is easy to switch out for colors more to your liking. At any rate, the end result will be beautiful.

This is beautiful because of the colors used in the design. This is not a beginner project with all of the color changes but if you are up for a challenge this may be the project for you.

I am a beginner and even though it says this is an Easy pattern I find it difficult to figure out the directions. Some are in parentheses and some are in brackets and parentheses. Is there any way to make it easier to decipher?

Hi linny, The parenthesis and brackets are just there to keep certain parts of the pattern together. Like in round 1: (Ch 1. Miss next 3 ch. 3 dc in next ch) 13 times. means that you do everything within the parenthesis 13 times before continuing to read round 1's directions. And then when you get to [(3 dc. Ch 3) twice. 3 dc] in last ch., you do the part in the inner parenthesis first (it's like math!), the 3 dc and ch3 - twice. Then you do an additional 3 dc, all in the last chain. Hope this helps!

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
