Crochet A Block Afghan 2018 – A Free Crochet Along
Join me for a new crochet a block series in this free crochet along – Crochet A Block Afghan 2018!
This year I am doing things a little bit differently. I will be making two blankets each consisting of 9 squares (blocks) plus I will be doing 6 extra squares to give a total of 24 squares for those that would like to make one big blanket!
The choice will be completely yours to either make the two smaller blankets or one large one!
You set your pace and work on your own time!
Each post will have a link to this main introduction page that will have all the links to each square as they become available!
PLEASE SHARE THIS CROCHET ALONG!
