I have been trying to crochet some quick and easy afghans for a crochet ministry at my church. The group is donating 3′ x 5′ afghans to our local hospital that in turn gives them to families of organ donors. I had never heard of this ministry before but a search on the internet shows there are several places that takes donations for this cause.
This pattern is great for a variegated yarn. It works up fast and is called “The Brain Dead Afghan” I am sure there is another name for this pattern.
I used the base chain plus 3 additions of 12 chains and the afghan came out at almost 36″ wide. I used Red Heart Desert Camo yarn. It took 6 skeins to measure almost 60″.
