The “A Zig and A Zag Afghan” was designed for a stitch sampler style CAL in September of 2017 and is available to view for free HERE on my blog or you can purchase the ad free pdf.

This pattern is available for purchase on my website: https://www.craftingfriendsdesigns.com/store/p309/A_Zig_and_A_Zag_Chevron_Afghan_Crochet_Pattern.html

I chose to work this afghan length wise to get a great, long style of the stitches AND because it helps you feel like it’s not going to take forever to complete. Information is given for you to work this width wise if you choose and is easy to adjust to your desired size.

This is a great way to learn a few new stitches, not be rushed to finish an afghan and work at a pace that is manageable to allow you to complete a good sized project!
