Welcome to YarnChick! I am a country girl with a full-time job and a lot of hobbies. I hope to share fun crochet patterns, recipes, and whole lot more. My first free pattern will be for my Mochachino Afghan.
It is a simple 4 count, 3 front- then 1 back-post double crochet (treble for our non-US friends). It is one of those easy-peasy ones that you can work on AND keep pace with a conversation. No pleading “Hold that thought, I’m counting” necessary.
This works up super thick and cozy and just the right size. I have counted it twice and apologize in advance if you find an error – please let me know and I will happily edit the pattern.
This is an original copyrighted design – please only use it for good, not evil. You know the drill. This pattern is only for personal use – please do not sell it or alter it for resale. Blah, blah, blah…
Hook: “I” (5.5mm)
Yarn: “Vanna’s Choice” brand acrylic (3.5 oz ~ 170 yds)
(6 skeins each); Linen, Taupe, & Chocolate
US Stitches: sl = slip stitch
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
fpdc = front post double crochet
bpdc = back post double crochet
Notes: each skein will make approximately 5 rows; the pattern is 4 stitches repeated 48 times per row
row 1 – dc in 4th ch from hook (counts as 1 dc), and in each ch to end (192 dc), ch 3 and turn
row 2 – ch 3 counts as 1st stitch, 1 fpdc around each of the next 2 dc, then bpdc around next, *fpdc next 3 then 1 bpdc* repeat all the way across to last 3 stitches and just do the fpdc of the pattern (do not add the final bpdc), ch 3 and turn
the entire pattern is the same as row 2 – change colors after every 5 rows
Variation: you could work any multiple of 5 to make the stripes wider
