    As I said earlier, I think this free afghan pattern is absolutely gorgeous. I love it! I don’t know if it has a name, the pattern was simply shared on the discussion board by the user Firejen. This afghan is made in one piece and you can find the pattern below.

    Absolutely gorgeous blocks crochet afghan free pattern

    I have been doing this pattern for years so its by memory now. Start with 3 colors. Each “block” is 9 stitches so for however wide you want the blanket, count in 9 to get your foundation (and always make it an uneven number of “blocks) eg: 19 blocks(makes it about 5′ long) 19×9=171 stitches then add 4 =175 sc for the foundation row.

    Row 1-2:Sc, switch to next color Row 3: sc 2 stitches,* front post double crochet(look it up), sc, until you have 5 posts, sc 9, then repeat post pattern(5 posts, 4 sc=9)(9sc), 2 sc (there is 2 sc at each end) Row 4: sc, switch to next color

    Repeat row 3-4 until you have 7 rows of posts

    Then switch the pattern to: Row 1: sc 11 stitches, then start pattern Row 4: sc, switch to next c

    So you will have your “blocks” of (5 posts & 4sc) and (9sc) with 2 sc at each end.

    Im not a pattern writer 🙂 i hope its not too confusing. (Source)

    2. Thank you for simplifying the pattern. I am confident that I can follow it. I am just confused with Row 19 which stTes “Rinse and Repeat”?
      Thank you,

      Thank you Jenny for figuring out the pattern, will try! I’m taking it for granted that these directions are for one color?
