The pattern is written in US Crochet Terms. Optional graphs are provided on pages 9 and 10, for those who prefer working from graphs. Abbreviations used and special instructions are included on page 2. The information you need to work from the graphs is included at the bottom of page 8.
This afghan pattern is crocheted with just single, double and double crochet bobble stitches.
You make the single crochet stitches in the back-loop of the stitches and then you will work double crochet stitches in the remaining front loop of a stitch, 2 rows prior in specific places to create the design.
The effect is similar to Mosaic Knitting (or Slip Stitch Knitting) but using crochet stitches instead. This technique is like the one used to create the old-time vintage Native American Navajo Afghans.
Only simple stitches are used to make this afghan, so I feel a determined beginner would be able to master the pattern. You will only need to understand where to find the front loops and back loops of your stitches, single crochet, double crochet and slip stitches.
Carol has prepared a video to help you master the technique too. Watch the video here.

The Wildwood Flower afghan.
Thank you for your review. I didn’t realize her patterns were worked in the back loop until you mentioned it. That explains the pronounced stitching and flat background. I love these designs but have yet to make any bobble type blanket……yet!
My favorite pattern from Shady Lane is the Picket fence.
My favorite Shady Lane pattern is the Howling Wolf Afghan.
I love her Nite Nite Teddy Bear Afghan but this Picket Fence afghan is really cool.
