Endless Hearts Afghan
This month, Carol Hegar from Shady Lane Original Crochet Designs has given me a copy of her Endless Hearts Afghan ePattern to review.
These hearts fit together perfectly to create a sweet cover-up for all ages. The tessellating heart design is quickly formed with a double crochet in front loop of stitch 2 rows below…it’s not popcorns!Carol Hegar
This 9-page ePattern includes instructions for baby, child and adult size afghans.
These afghans are crocheted using just single crochet and double crochet stitches.
Baby Afghan | 36.5 inches X 44. 5 inches | 3.50 mm (E) crochet hook | 24 ounces Baby/Sport/DK Weight Yarn
Child Afghan | 40.5 inches X 49. 5 inches | 3.75 mm (F) crochet hook | 29 ounces Baby/Sport/DK Weight Yarn
Large Adult Afghan | 45.75 inches X 55.75 inches | 4 mm (G) crochet hook | 60 ounces Worsted Weight Yarn
Largest Adult Afghan | 52.25 inches X 63.75 inches | 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook | 70 ounces Worsted Weight Yarn
The pattern is formed by cleverly placing dropped dc stitches into the front loop of a stitch from two rows before. It’s very similar in looks to mosaic (or slip stitch) knitting but it is made with easy crochet stitches instead!
Visit Carol’s website to watch her video tutorial that shows you how easy this stitch technique is to do! Watch the video here.
Carol has been specializing in this technique since the mid 1980’s. The technique is the same stitch technique that was used to create the “Trail of Tears” afghan that was so popular in the 1970’s.
It has become very popular again lately using the name of Mosaic Crochet.
Please take the time to read page 3 of the pattern to learn about how the afghans are crocheted and to review the placement of your stitches.
