Sophie’s Universe Afghan has become wildly popular amongst crochet fans. This complicated square blanket pattern comes with a video tutorial which will lead you step by step. While it is patterned to make a square blanket in a continuous fashion, optional instructions can be made available should you wish to make it more rectangular.  As you can see on the photos below, the color combination is amazing, but the monochrome version of Sophie’s Universe is also breathtaking. For more free designs every day follow us on Facebook. Link to the free pattern is below.
