Afghans for Crocheters

Here are some great samples of crocheted afghans from the Berroco Comfort Knitting & Crochet Afghans book. If you're a knitter only, these samples may just turn you into a hooker! Seriously, they are THAT awesome. The trunk show is here through Monday of next week, so come on in and check it out!
Here's Ribbon, worked up in happy shade of Vintage. I love the columns of broomstick lace. But am I a little scared to try it? Yep! Practice your single and half double crochet in the Bi-Color Chevron, made up in Weekend. It looks gorgeous with these two similar shades, but I think it would also be stunning in 2 more contrasting colors as well.Maine, shown here in Comfort Worsted, is worked in pieces and then put together at the end. These color really do remind me of my camp in Maine! But imagine it worked up in very similar shades... beautiful!The Dots afghan, shown here in Comfort Worsted, is one of my favorites. Barb is making one of these for herself and I can't wait for her to finish it. I just love the colors of Greenway, shown here in Comfort Worsted. This pattern is included in the book, but was also made free on the Berroco website. So if you don't have the book, you can still try this one! Remember, with the code AFGHAN, you can save 20% off these yarns and the book! Today is the last day for this.

Coming up next, the knitted samples! Stay tuned...

Isn't Swirl a knitted afghan? I have the pattern book and that afghan was in the running for a baby blanket I'm making for my sister... I'm pretty sure it's knit, not crochet...

Umm, you caught me! That's what happens when I have 17 afghan swatches on my desk, 17 photos, and I'm trying to write 2 posts. I goofed. I've removed the Swirl part from this post, because YEP, it's not crocheted. Glad you are proofing for me. Thanks!
