The Simple Afghan Granny Stripe is absolutely beautiful in its simplicity and makes a fantastic blanket. It’s a great choice for new crocheters who are thrilled to embark on a large-scale project, but this is also a very relaxing standard for any crocheter looking for a therapeutic blanket, soothing to work without having to count or think too much. The pleasure of working these colored lines using only a single point should not be underestimated, it is really a complete joy. Important to remember that you can feel free to use any type of color!!
The perfect Simple Afghan Granny Stripe crochet blanket for beginners. The simple plaid blanket has a slightly more challenging pattern, but still fairly easy. At first it can be a bit difficult, but you can do it! If you do not finish with the border color, you will need to change the colors before starting the border.
This pattern has been popular for several years, especially for making blankets. It’s a nice, smooth and easy design that can be made in virtually endless color combinations. You can make this blanket the size of a doll for your grandchildren, nephews, son or to gift some child or even an adult; children love having little blankets to wrap babies, picnics and stuffed animals.
This simple striped tunic is made up of agglomerated points with only 3 double crochet stitches in one space, and then the border is 3 SC lines, joined at the end with a slip point. The final size is 50 x 75 inches.
You can make the grandmother’s stripe crochet pattern in any size, in terms of width, by changing the number of initial strings. It is important that you remember this simple rule:
The starting string must be a multiple of 3 and then add 2. To find out if a number is a multiple of 3, add the digits. If the number you end up dividing by 3, so will your starting number.
Example:assuming you want to start with 250 strings. Add the digits: 2 + 5 + 0 = – 7, which does not divide by 3. But try 252 strings – that’s 2 + 5 + 2 = 9, which divides by 3. Then add two. Then, 254 chains.
The half-pound Nessse Caron model was used in gray and white.
A double crochet cluster is 3 low points at the same point.
Using a “G” hook, chain 147.
Line 1: Work 1 double dot on the third string. * Skip 2 points, work the double crochet cluster at the next point *. Repeat all the way. Make 2 double crochets in the last chain. Chain 2 and turn.
Line 2: Work a double crochet cluster in the first space between the clusters in the previous row. Do it all the way. Finish with a double crochet at the top of rope 2 at the end of the line. Cut the threads and weave the ends (or wait until the end as I did – LOL).
Line 3: Join the new color with a chain of double crochet slip points 2, 1 in the same space. Work double crochet clusters in all spaces. Work 2 double points at the top of rope 2 at the end of the course. Chain 2 and turn.
Line 4: Work double crochet clusters in all spaces of the line. Finish with a double crochet at the top of rope 2 at the end of the line. Cut lines and weave ends (or wait).
- Repeat lines 3 and 4, alternating colors until you reach the desired size. *
Do not forget to weave all tails
Edge: Chain 1 and single crochet in each point at the top, 3 points in the corner. Continue the single crochet down side using 3 low stitches for every 2 rows (I have a total of 204 stitches down each side), 3 in the corner, single crochets on each stitch at the bottom and single crochet on the other side. Repeat for a total of 3 lines. Attach the last crochet point to the corner with a slip point and interlace the tail.
