Introducing the Crochet Breaking Waves Afghan designed by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd aka me. Inspired by the breaking waves of water on a coastal edge and looking to Caron Big Cakes, Blue Macaroon, I developed a textured look wave afghan.

The crashing of the waves appear using front and back posts in 1 row every 4th row. Stabilized by the other 3 rows. The colour changes naturally coming out of the yarn ball give the afghan a look of gradation like you are painting the surface of the water onto the afghan.

The yarn multiple is in 18. So you can change the size of the afghan if you wish by just changing the number of sets of 18. There are 11 sets of 18 in my sample. Seriously though, the sample didn’t take long to make and I enjoyed making it too! The changes of the colour make it more interesting to crochet along.
