The Artisan Afghan was specifically designed to help crocheters build their knowledge and skills, all while giving them a great project!
This afghan is worked in 12 parts:
- 10 different stitch patterns worked in long blocks
- Joining each long block together
- Border round, with contrasting edging
Looking for a stash-buster? Want to create an afghan thats totally portable? This challenge is for you!
I learned to crochet at the age of 5 and haven't put my hook down since! I've published over 300 patterns, authored 7 crochet books, taught 2 courses with Craftsy, and launched the American Crochet Association in 2015. I currently live in Oregon with my husband, son, 2 cats and 1 dog.
