The block I used for this afghan was from the book “200 Crochet Blocks“. I decided to purchase this book after seeing several projects made on Ravelry. All the blocks are the same size and can be mixed and matched.
This block is #35 on page 51 the “Tricolor Square”. It is a fairly simple block using triple crochets, double crochets, and single crochets. I think the color combinations are endless for this design.
I used a size H crochet hook and Red Heart Super Saver yard in Country Blue, Cafe Latte, and Aran. The squares are approx. 8″ x 8″. I made the afghan 6 squares by 8 squares, and crocheted a double crochet border around the whole afghan. The finished size is 66 x 50.
I have already started on a new color combination using a variegated yarn and can’t wait to see how it turns out.
