Red Heart Dynamic Squares Crochet Throw Class

Learn how to make a modern granny square afghan your guests will envy!

Add a modern touch to your interior decor! The Dynamic Squares Throw crochet blanket pattern is a stunning design from Red Heart. A variety of square and rectangle motifs come together to create a compelling twist on your standard granny square afghan. Featuring five yarn colors and both front and back post double crochet stitches, this intermediate crochet pattern is made easy through the help of a four-part video series, or class. Join crochet expert and designer Marly Bird as she walks you through the step-by-step process of completing this throw. The videos, divided into parts by large crochet granny squares, small squares, rectangles, and finishing, allow you to easily follow along. A pattern filled with written crochet abbreviations can certainly be intimidating! Eliminate any hesitation by watching videos that easily break down the pattern's steps. Marly Bird even answers those unasked questions! For example, the sides of the large square in Part 1 might not be totally straight when completed, but after joining it to the rest of the afghan, the square will adapt to its proper shape. In most cases, watching a video series is so much more informative than following the written pattern! So, what are you waiting for? "Enroll" in this Red Heart Dynamic Squares Crochet Throw Class, and make a stunning afghan you will cherish for years to come...

Red Heart is know for having some splendid crochet projects. From clothing to home decor to the ever famous afghans. This dynamic squares throw is no exception. With a simple concept of making squares and rectangles and joining them in a strategic way you end up with this beautiful creation.

I would easily call this the ultimate in motif crochet design. You are required to make three types of motifs to assemble to make the final project. There are some special stitches to master but nothing to hard that you can not accomplish with a little determination. I love this design for all of its complexity.
