Here are more afghans I've made recently. This blue and white one was really fun. It was a variegated yarn, which is fun to work with.
Not sure if you can tell from the photos, but it is a "fuzzy" yarn. I did simple double crochet with an open weave stitch put in at two points in the afghan.
I like to see what kind of color pattern emerges with variegated yarn.
Another variegated yarn--this one was really fun. Look at how often the colors change!
It was a fine yarn, and I simply used double crochet back and forth. It wasn't boring because of the fun yarn!
A nice bright pink yarn went into this afghan.
I added some open weave stitching randomly as I went along. Just whenever I felt like it!
This light blue afghan used a fat and fluffy yarn. I keep telling myself I will not buy any more fat or textured yarn, yet it keeps calling to me! I don't particularly like using it because it is harder to work with on my crochet hook. But the end result is very nice.
Here is a shot of the afghan that shows how I alternated double crochet with skipped stitches to create a random pattern.
Lastly, here is a nice medium blue afghan, using just regular yarn!
I used a "skip one stitch, single crochet and double crochet in the next stitch" for this one. I really like the textured pattern it makes.
