In the link below, you will find all the information needed to crochet this afghan together with the 45 patterns of squares used in it.  Link to the free pattern is below.

    I have been eyeing this afghan for sometime trying to get up the courage to start on it. But o heng (afrkikaans for Oh what the heck ;)) One of these days I will just do it. :).

  5. Just love how the afghan center square is shown at twice the size of the other squares yet the pattern is just for a square the same size so I guess we need to make things up as we go along. Oh, but wait—-can’t make a lot of the squares because I can not afford to PAY for the pattern. Please excuse my ignorance–I thought when something was listed as a free afghan pattern, you got all the pieces of it free.

  6. I love the vintage look of your afghan. Would you please tell me what colors you used? Thank you@

    I love it. Just beautiful. If I didn’t have so many projects going on I would love to get my hook into it!

  8. I can’t say this was easy to find which colour goes where and which row. Took a lot of time reading, viewing and understanding each square of each of the pattern. I did not pay for all of the patters, just purchased the centre piece and 4 others – https://www.ravelry.com/projects/Mazalie/block-a-week-cal—covid-20-21 – It is your choice what squares to use. I used A Block a week mostly. lookatwhatimade.net – I was inspired by Sharon Blignaut, who created this colour scheme – https://www.ravelry.com/projects/SharonBlignaut/block-a-week-cal-2014 -Thank you Sharon for the inspiration.

  9. To everyone looking for all the squares in this beautiful pattern, I believe most of these squares are in Hooked on Grannies at https://www.ravelry.com/. It is $6 for 36 patterns; a couple are not in the PDF files, but all the patterns are on Ravelry.
