Originally published by The American Thread Company in 1947, this is a man-sized afghan at six feet long (not including the fringe) and nearly 5 feet wide. Woven crochet produces a dense, warm plaid or tartan fabric. Done in modern worsted weight acrylic it’s not quite as heavy as with the old synthetic yarns and has the added bonus of being truly machine washable. Woven crochet is a deceptively simple technique, despite the large size this afghan works up fairly quickly.
Size 58" x 72" not including fringe
