One of the easiest ways to add a little extra color to your home decor is with a cheerfully colored crochet afghan. If you really want to up the “oomph” on that pop of color, try making a sassy striped crochet afghan pattern. Not only will you be able to pick colors you love, but you’ll be able to use them all! Stripes are also great stashbuster projects; they are a great way to use up smaller quantities of yarn you might have sitting around the stash. Whether you are looking for a traditionally striped afghan pattern or a fun ripple crochet blanket, there is something fun here for you to hook up and then snuggle under. So go raid the stash and see if you have what it takes to make one of these sassy striped beauties!
