Rocking Horse Afghan Pattern
This month, Carol Hegar from Shady Lane Original Crochet Designs has given me a copy of her Rocking Horse Afghan Pattern to review and a second copy to giveaway to one of my readers!
This pretty textured afghan has an adorable Rocking Horse framed by a border of diamond blocks. You can easily crochet this in any color, making it suitable for a wide-range of recipients.
The entire pattern uses single crochet stitches (sc) worked in the back loop of a stitch, double crochet stitches (dc) worked in a remaining front loop of a stitch from 2 rows before and single crochet bobble stitches. The sc bobble stitches are explained in the Special Stitches Section on page 4.
The pattern is worked on the RS (right side) only, and you will finish-off the strand of yarn you are working with at the end of every row. The project is designed to allow you to create a fringe on the left and right side edges of the blanket. BONUS: You will not have any ends to sew in!
By watching Carol’s helpful step-by-step video tutorial you will be able to master the dropped double crochet technique easily.
This 7-page ePattern is written in U.S. Crochet Terms and uses only simple crochet stitches. Instructions on how to read the pattern and how to recognize the loops of the stitches are included on page 3. Row by row written instructions are included from page 4 to page 6 and the optional Afghan Graph (for those who prefer following graphs) is included on page 7.
The border on two sides is created by overhand knots that are tied which means you have no ends to sew in!
