The Moroccan Tile Afghan is warm, cozy, a fast V stitch pattern to
crochet, and full of color! It’s the latest free crochet blanket pattern
on Moogly – and I’ve included guidelines for 6 different sizes!
The pattern here is written for a throw/afghan sized blanket, as that’s
the size I’ve made. Based on the throw, I’ve created the chart below
with info to make 5 other sizes! (Since everyone’s gauge is different,
and the type of yarn used can effect the outcome as well, these are only
guidelines – you’ll need to make your own gauge swatch if you need it
to be exact!) And of course, you can make the whole thing in only two
colors if you like – it’s all up to you!
- US – K, 6.5mm hook
- 3060 yds total Aran weight yarn in 2 or more colors (for the throw – see chart below for other sizes)
