Crochet this colorful and warm afghan for a loved one or yourself. The textured wavy stitch is fun to work up and a delight to look upon. It also works up quickly. The inspiration for this afghan was a photo of a sunset from the Bayou St. John in New Orleans; hence its name. :-) The pattern includes the inspiration photo.

The completed afghan measures 39” x 52”, but can be customized to any size preference.

The pattern includes 16 pages of step-by-step instructions with many, many photos, as well as, shortened directions without photos and a 1 page “abbreviated written pattern” for printing. One of the exciting features of this afghan is that the ends do not need to be woven in; they are left and tied together for fringe.

The pattern is written in English with US crochet terms. One of my kind testers translated the pattern to Arabic and that pattern is included, as well.

Included in the pattern are other ideas for which the pattern can be used.
