Crochet A Block Afghan 2018 | Creative Crochet Workshop @creativecrochetworkshop #freecrochetalong #grannysquare #afghansquare

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!

My Hook:
3.25 mm

Size: 23 cm x 23 cm (approx. 9 inches) for each block

Remember – if you use/choose a different yarn weight/hook size your square will be a different size!
But as long as you keep using the same (being consistent) your squares will be the same size.

Skill:
Easy to Intermediate – blocks will range from beginner to also more advanced techniques with step by step photo tutorials.

I use US Crochet stitch terminology

What you will crochet:

24 x 9 inch (23 cm x 23 cm) afghan blocks divided as follows:

9 squares for first blanket (optional)

9 squares for second blanket (optional)

and 6 extra squares to complete a 24 square blanket
