Textured Tiles Afghan ePattern
The Textured Tiles Afghan ePattern can be crocheted in 3 different sizes simply by changing the yarn and the hook you use with the pattern
The Textured Tiles Afghan is crocheted using 2 different colors of yarn.
I love the balanced mosaic design that can be created with this beginner friendly crochet pattern.
Each row of this afghan is crocheted in a single color. At the end of the row you finish off and then begin the next row on the same side of the project. That’s right! You do not turn your work to make this, you simple work with the RS (right side) of the project facing you.
You also do not need to worry about weaving in any ends from these rows because they are used to create a fun fringe instead!
Adult, Child and Baby Sizes
Adult | 46.25 inches X 58.75 inches | 4 mm (G) hook | Medium Weight Yarn 
Child | 41 inches X 52.25 inches | 3.75 mm (F) hook |Baby/Sport/DK Weight Yarn
Baby | 37 inches X 47 inches | 3.50 mm (E) hook | Baby/Sport/DK Weight Yarn
The pattern is written in US Crochet Terms. Optional graphs are provided on page 6, 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 6.
This afghan is crocheted with just chain stitches, slip stitches, single crochet stitches and double crochet 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.
