Half Double and Front Post Afghan

Found this pattern on page 46 of Afghans for all Seasons.
I bought this yarn through a catalog and didn't know what pattern to use for it...Had to take the picture the way I did so everyone could see the detail of the pattern. Very easy

American Indian Blanket #3

Phew...I started this one on Sunday night Aug 19th and finished it tonight after work...Aug 22. I figured out that I crocheted 6 colors changes and 11 rows in 45 minutes at 150 stitches per row. How fast is that?

American Indian blanket #2

Here's another one...made it while on vacation last week.

Chain 140, 150 or 160 depending on how large you want the blanket...I used a K hook... All single crochet
*1 row black, 1 row white, 1 row black, 3 rows solid, 3 rows variegated, 3 rows solid and repeat from *.
If single crocheting is to slow for you try half double crochet it would work just as well. I find sc very fast to do. This took me
4 nights while on vacation...

American Indian Blanket

We went to Yosemite this past week and I made this blanket.
It was fun to do. Using different colors of solid and
variegated yarn. Very easy as well. All Single Crochet.
