Native American Afghan and Cocoon ePattern
This is one of Carol’s most popular designs!
This design is made using just single and double crochet stitches. All color changes are made at beginning of rows, so you are only working with one color at a time.
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.
This pattern includes instructions to make an afghan in 2 sizes. The adult size is made using Medium Worsted Weight Yarn  and the baby size is crocheted using Baby Weight Yarn . Also included with this pattern are instructions to make a baby cocoon swaddler to fit babies from newborn to 3 months of age. This swaddler is made using Baby Weight Yarn .
- Adult Size | 45 inches X 65 inches | Medium Worsted Weight yarn  | 4 mm (G) hook
- Baby Size | 36 inches X 40 inches | Baby Weight yarn  | 3.50 mm (E) hook
- Baby Cocoon | 18 inches X 19 inches | Baby Weight yarn  | 3.50 mm (E) hook
The pattern includes instructions written in US Crochet Terms. Optional graphs are provided to illustrate the stitches for those who prefer working from graphs.

My favourite Shady Lane design is the Granada Afghan. Thanks so much!
Wow! Beautiful blanket!
There are so many beautiful patterns, it is hard to choose just one. I think my favorite would be the “Howling Wolf Afghan”.
I really like the Granada Afghan. I would love to try and make it sometime.
I think my Shady Lane’s favorite design will always be her Nite Nite Teddy Bear Afghan
I would love to make the Taos Poncho and Afghan. It’s great!
