Crochet Sampler

2015 Crochet Along Afghan Sampler | The Inspired Wren

It's the 2015 Afghan Sampler! Crochet two squares per month and have a finished blanket in one year.
  • The afghan will be comprised of twenty 9-inch squares.
  • There will be five rows made up of four squares each. [Final size: approx. 36" x 45"]
  • We will crochet ten sample-stitches.
  • We will complete two squares each month using one sample-stitch.
  • New squares will be posted on the Last Tuesday of the month. All squares have been posted.
  • Each square will be a solid color, and each sample-stitch will be completed in two colors.*
  • The final blanket will have a total of three colors.*
  • You can stitch the squares in any order, but START WITH SQUARE 1. There you will find information on yarn amounts and color schemes.
*You may also opt to make a monochromatic afghan, one color is also a lovely look. OR maybe you want to go multicolored and use ten, or even twenty, colors. The choice is yours; I'll be working tri-color.
