Music afghan graphs

Recommended Posts

ok by request I am going to attempt to post the links to the graphs for the music afghan squares here. If anyone has trouble viewing them please let me know and I will try and email them to you. I am also putting the basic instructions but in my opinion each of you could join squares and edge as you desire.

Music Afghan

Supplies: white yarn 32 ounces

black yarn 12 ounces

Size I/9 5.5mm hook or size needed for gauge.

Gauge: 4sc and 5 rows=1”

Finished size: squares are 15in wide by 14in tall

Afghan is made up of 2 squares of each graph

Treble Clef, eight note, single eight note, quarter note, half notes, whole notes

*To change colors: work the last stitch to within one step of completion, hook new yarn and draw through all loops on hook

For each square:

Row 1: with I hook and white ch 51, single crochet in second ch from hook and in each ch across (50 sc) ch 1 turn. Mark row 1 as wrong side

Row 2: sc in each sc across ch 1 turn.

Row 3-50 begin following graph at row 3 changing to black* in last sc made

At the end of row 50 do not finish off. Ch 1 3 sc in end of row 50, sc in end of each row down, 3sc in free loop of first sc of row 1, sc in each free loop across, 3sc in end of row 1, sc in each row up, 3sc in first sc of row 50, sc in each sc across, join with slip stitch to first sc. Fasten off.

Repeat pattern following each graph 2 times. Total squares 12

Joining: join with slip stitch. Hold two squares with wrong sides together matching top of one square to the bottom of the other slip stitch through both loops of both squares. Finish off.

Continue in the same manner until you have four squares in a vertical strip. Repeat with four more squares two times. You will now have three strips of four squares each. Take two strips hold with wrong sides together and matching top to top slip stitch through both loops of both squares the length of the strip. Repeat with final strip held to wrong side of one of the other strips.

RND 2 join black in center sc of any corner stitch ch 3 4dc in same stitch *skip next sc sc in next skip next sc 5dc in next, repeat from * around join with slip stitch in the 3rd ch of first ch 3. Finish off

Have you made any of these squares? I'd love to see what they look like. I've been thinking about making an afghan for my sister.

I'm a singer and after seeing your patterns I think I might make a lapghan with a big treble clef in the middle. I just need to find a way to make it bigger. Do I just double the squares?

You can make the pattern bigger simply by crocheting 3 dc for each square (instead of 1 sc for each sq) like you would if you were doing filet crochet. But using two colors instead of one color and lots of holes.

About.com has a lot of good info about filet crochet if you are not familiar with it.

Basically each sq on the graph paper would equal 3 dc. You would follow the graph and change colors when the square indicated.

Hope that helps! :)

This is awesome! :D  This is a pattern I might love to learn and make for myself. Probably not keep it, though... LOL Rarely keep anything I make :) I know a few people, of course myself included, who would love an afghan like this!
