    I simply can’t pick a favorite! I’ve made rectangle, hexagon, rippled lace, hexagon motifs, and tunisian with a worked-in design…all within the past year; and am currently finishing a “zippered” square afghan.

  2. DEBORAH COOK says

    I love to crochet and afghans are my favorite project to make. Usually I make them and give as gifts and I would love to have new patterns to try.

    My favorite type of afghan isn’t one you have listed. I like different textures created with just the basic stitches. I tend to do other things (read, watch tv, talk) while crocheting, so using easy stitches works for me, and varying how I use them makes some very pretty and interesting designs.

  4. Joann Jones says

    I love to make afghans of all shapes, sizes and patterns. People want to know how I can talk or watch tv without looking at my patterns. I just tell them that I use the basic patterns when I do that. I like patterns that are colorful but do not need to sew blocks together.

  5. Kathryn Meador says

    I always have a granny square project started! When the scrap yarns start piling up, I start making squares. It’s so easy and compact to carry somewhere, because all you need is a few colors at a time. Although I have learned to start putting the squares together after I have enough for one row at a time. I doesn’t feel so intimidating to me that way, and I know I will finish, and feel a great satisfaction when it is done!
