I found this large vintage afghan blanket at an estate sale at a home that was frozen in time circa 1975. A fine example of a classic crochet zig-zag chevron motif, the colors are phenomenal! The yellows and gold are vibrant, yet not garish. The tan, brown, and teal tone it down a bit, and make this a most appealing color combination. It has a nice fringed edging.

The blanket is in very good vintage condition, no holes, tears, pulls, or unraveling.

Handmade vintage textiles remind me of the continuity between generations. Forty years or so ago, someone took the time to make a blanket for her family. She most likely learned the stitch she used to make the afghan from her mother or grandmother, who learned the stitch from her mother, and on it goes back into history. Crochet is an ancient art and this afghan is a fine 1970s example of that art.

The afghan has been laundered and is ready for use.

Contents: 100% Acrylic Yarn
Care: Machine wash in delicate cycle with mild soap. When I washed it, I laid it flat and let it partially dry, then put it in the dryer on low. You could probably put it straight into the dryer, just make sure it's on low.

Dimensions: 70" x 53"
