How many of you work on multiple projects simultaneously? Sometimes that is called procrastination but in this case I worked on two afghans at the same time out of necessity (to keep me sane). Afghans take time and doing the same pattern for hours can get a bit boring, so when I got tired of one I switched to the other. The best thing is when I am done I have two projects completed!
This afghan pattern, “Woodland Circle,” is a free crochet pattern from Lion Brand and is made with their popular yarn Homespun.
For this afghan, I simply took a crochet stitch pattern and adapted it to create the afghan. I call it “Houndstooth Afghan.” The use of contrasting colors makes it very striking. You can purchase this easy pattern from Grace Elizabeth’s Etsy Shop. You get a downloadable 3 page pattern with detailed instructions, stitch guide and pictures of the completed afghan.
