Bright colors and distinct textures make up this lively crochet block afghan. I made this cozy afghan for my daughter when we remade her bedroom into a “big girl” room.

This design is filled with different stitch patterns and is versatile in creating different variations:

  • Make the afghan in four colors plus an accent color like white OR make it in just two colors.
  • Finish a small lap version (4x4’) OR a full-sized bedspread (5x7’) or some other square-block finished sized.
  • Alternate pattern blocks with solid blocks OR make them all patterned (or all solid)!
  • You can even make an all-patterned afghan (no solid squares) look slightly different depending on whether you start with the main color or the accent.

The pattern includes a worksheet grid for you to plan your own color and pattern layout!
