This picket fences lapghan looks very nice. I love the colors used here, and the stripe pattern. The spaces every few stitches really do look like a picket fence, which is amazing. There are so many different color combinations I am thinking this would look great in! What colors do you like best?

For a fairly large project, this has a very small pattern. After working the requisite chain and starting row (note this is NOT a Foundation row), the rest of the lapghan is worked from a single pattern row. You just keep the repeat until the lapghan measures 40 inches. One of the commenters asked how to enlarge it, but since its worked lengthwise, you could have however many stitches you want for the initial chain.

Wow what a easy pattern this Picket Fences Lapghan is! I like the pattern made from just doing the single, chain and double crochet stitches. I think anyone can make this one after they get the above stitches down. I'm thinking of making mine out of a nice soft brown color. This is a great pattern to make in the cool weather for it will be a warm blanket/afghan. Thanks to PixieishBlonde below for the increasing and decreasing of the pattern. I've added this one to my long list of must make. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

For those asking about increasing and decreasing the size of this, it looks like the pattern is designed as 7x+5 for the initial chain. The posted pattern uses 20 7-pattern repetitions plus 5 chains for the intro. To change the size, simply choose any multiple of 7 and add five to it for your beginning chain - for example, if you wanted to make it half size, you would use 7*10 + 5, or 75 for your starting chain. Double size would be 285 for the starting chain. I would estimate that 180 for a starting chain would be about right for 45" and 215 would be about right for 54".

Also for the record a 124 starting chain gave me a 29" width for a baby blanket, if anyone is interested in doing this as a baby blanket.

in order to make a full sized afghan i chained 187 chains and it worked for me.

@rodt-SK means skip @janeanalp-In order to print, you must go to the original project page and print from there. If they do not have an easy print button, you would have to copy and paste in a Word doc and print from there. Thanks!

how do io print this pattern?

First of all you need to click the link that says "Click here for Crochet pattern" and after that link opens up simply press ctrl P and your printer software will open up and print the page.

Shouldn't pattern read *Ch 3, sk 3 chs, sc in next ch, sk 2 ch's, 3 dc in next ch)*rep across, ch 1 turn not (Ch 3, sk 3 chs, sc in next ch, sk 2 ch's, 3 dc in next ch) rep across, ch 1 turn since the ( ) means work in the same stitch?

Can anyone please tell me what the instructions mean when it says sk. Does this mean skip those stitches??? Thanks!

If you cannot print the pattern, try this: Using the mouse, select the instructions. Using the CTRL-C keyboard command, copy the selected text. Open Notepad or Word. Place the cursor on the page in the text editor (word or Notepad0 you selected. enter the command CTRL-V. Now you have a word or Notepad document with the instructions. Save the document to whatever location you use for such things, naming it as you choose. Now, this will not work on all web pages, but it is certainly worth a try whenever you cannot print the page.

If we can't print the instructions, then why are you putting it in the show? We would like to have access to all patterns, or , don't show them.

I am unable to print the directions. I am signed in. I click on for crochet pattern. However I only get page 1, with the picture. Please help as I lcan't print some very good patterns.. Mary DeFilippis mary.defilippis@gmail.com
