Camouflage Afghan in Box Stitch

Recommended Posts

That afghan pattern is the first one I learned (32 years ago!). I love it cause you can do so many different things with it. Your afghan is beautiful!

He loved the afghan & said he was wondering when I'd make him one.:lol I got to snuggle under it last night & it's quite toasty. It's nice to be able to visit your projects after you give them away. ;) This was my first time using the box stitch and it won't be my last. It's a fun stitch and I really like the bumpy texture it makes. :hook

That is an amazing afghan. I made a box stitch afghan with all cammo and it was nice, but this one is really great!

Hello

Do you have a pattern for this? Where would I even start on an angle. It kinda looks loke knitt but crocheted. Please help

This is for my Valentine:manyheart He's getting it later today. I started it in November when he went hunting and worked on and off all this time until last week when I realized I was only half way done.:eek I finished it last night. I was going to do a border, but decided against it. I think it's ok without one.

This one's taken from a weird angle. It's really a rectangle, not a trapezoid.:lol

I even like how the back looks:

It's done in diagonal box stitch, inspired by NPrairie's camoghan (Thanks, N!:hug ). I did 7 rows camo, 1 row green, 3 rows black, 1 row green. Using odd numbers of rows made the up & down bumps of each stripe the same as the other stripes in the same color. I didn't think of that when I started, so I'm glad it worked out that way!:lol The camo is Bernat Renegade in many different dye lots, but it's not as obvious in person as it is in the pictures. The green is dark sage RHSS and the black is Simply Soft. It's 54x72". Thanks for looking!:hook
