This is pretty and easy to crochet pattern by Coats and Clark. It has a repeat after every 10th row and once you get the pattern down you won’t have to look at the instructions. Every even row is a repeat of single crochets.
I used a H hook so it wouldn’t be so wide but if I do it again I will use a size I hook and decrease the base row. I used 8 skeins of Red Heart, Buff yarn. This is a heavy afghan and a good pattern if you want something warm.
This is rated for an intermediate crocheter (is this a real word?). I believe a confident beginner could do this. It only uses single and double crochets.
