Americana Afghan

from The Fur~Babies Momma
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Americana Afghan
Americana Afghan

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You need to be able to double crochet.

Pattern Description:

I just LOVE red, white and blue. Any time I get a chance to use it, I use it.

Add to that love, my love of granny squares and making baby gifts, this was a certain outcome for me . . . a red, white and blue baby afghan. . . no pastel baby items for me.

This is a photo tutorial pattern. I know that some people are visual learners, while some do better with the written word, so I have combined them on the pattern. LOTS of pictures to help those visual learners to go with the written pattern.

Since this is made with granny squares, it can easily be made into a larger sized blanket. A friends made it to fit a full sized bed for an auction at her local veterans organization. That made me happy.

100% of the purchase price for the pattern goes to Natalie's 2nd Chance Shelter, a no-kill dog shelter in my home state of Indiana. It is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.

The "Fur~Babies" and I thank you for your purchase..
