Chunky Afghan


This is my first pattern, so please contact me if there are any problems.

Chunky Afghan.

You will need: Robin Chunky 100% Acrylic (100g) balls. Colour choices are your decision.

Size 5mm crochet hook (British Term)

Cup of Tea, biscuit and a good film to watch.


Method:

1. Make a slip knot and chain 6. Join with a slip stitch in the first chain to form a circle.
2.Chain 3, (this counts as your first treble) then do 2 trebles, chain 3, 3 trebles, chain 3, 3 trebles, chain 3, 3 trebles, chain 1. Then go into the 3rd chain from beg Chain 3 and do a single crochet.

3. Chain 3, (this counts as your first treble to start a round), one treble in the space.

Then do 3 trebles in the top of each stitch from previous row.



Now your at a corner: Do 2 treble, 2 chain, 2 treble in the corner space. (you should have 7 trebles along the first side) and 2 trebles to start the next side. Now do 3 trebles along the top of the next side, 2 trebles, 2 chain and 2 trebles. (Thats another corner).

Picture 3
Repeat this until you have the next round completed with a ch 1, single crochet in third chain of begining round.

I changed colour at this point, so trim your yarn but not too short. Tie on the next colour and just repeat from No.2 until the blanket is big enough.

Phew; I didnt realise how much time it took to put a pattern together.
