Crochet
January 1972

4 stitches and 3 rows = 1 inch
6.0 mm (J)

This is a very colorful afghan using black, white, and 2 shades of red.

Using a size J afghan hook in the afghan stitch (tunisian crochet) you make 3 solid color panels: 2 narrow black panels of 35 stitches and 1 larger white center panel of 111 stitches. These panels are edged with 2 single crochet rows of the four colors on the joining edges. Using cross stitch each panel is extensively embroidered according to the charts. After sewing the three panels together 2 rows of single crochet in each color except black border the entire afghan. There is a final round of black single crochet to finish the border. Using strands of all 4 colors fringe the narrow ends of the afghan.

The afghan is approximately 56 x72 inches not including the fringe.

The original pattern calls for Bernat Berella Germantown (2 oz. balls):
5 Scarlet red (lighter red)
3 Geranium red (darker red)
16 White
12 Black

J afghan hook for the tunisian crochet
3.00 mm (called new D) Bernat-Aero crochet hook
3.50 mm (New E) Bernat-Aero crochet hook

The pattern neglects to give directions for when to use the size 3.00 mm and 3.50 mm crochet hooks. It appears they are for doing the edges of the panels and the afghan border and/or the fringe.
