Free Crochet Pattern Easy to Crochet V-Stitch Scrap Yarn Afghan

This Easy to Crochet Scarp Yarn Afghan highlights your colors with a V-stitch. I used up my scraps of Caron and Bernat Yarns but this would be pretty using multiples of 3 or 4 colors and alternating them. 


You can crochet this free pattern in any size you want.  I made mine a bit longer to cover a daybed.  According to the pattern you start your first color by chaining 207 stitches but I did about 307 to make it a bit larger.

Abbreviations Details & Instructions 
Ch(s) Chain   Dc (Double crochet)   Sc (Single crochet)
Finished measurements Approx. 50"/127 cm wide x 56"/142 cm long

MATERIALS 
The pattern below is written for 3 colors but you can use a variety of multiple yarns.  If you want a lighter weight afghan try using Caron Simply Soft Yarn or Bernat Lighter Weight Yarn.  Using up your scrap yarns to make this will make the gauge and weight vary.

Gauge - In a pattern stitch, 16 sts and 13 rows = 4"/10cm.
From Scraps to Sensational




INSTRUCTIONS 
COLOR SEQUENCE (Based on 3 Yarn colors)
 Work *4 rows with A, 4 rows with B, 4 rows with C, 4 rows with B; repeat from * for Color Sequence. 

NOTES 1. To change color in the last sc of a row, work last sc of old color to last yarn over, yarn over with new color and draw through both loops on hook to complete stitch. 
2. In the fifth row of the afghan pattern, single crochet stitches are worked into ch-1 spaces 2 rows below the current row. When working these single crochet stitches, take care to draw the loop of the single crochet up to the height of the current row. These single crochet stitches are to be worked over the single crochet 1 row below (into which you would usually work). 
AFGHAN With A, chain 207 (you can alter this for a larger or smaller afghan. 
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—206 sc. 
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn.
 Row 3 (right side): Ch 2 (counts as first dc here and throughout), dc in next sc, *ch 1, skip next sc, dc in next 2 sc; repeat from * across, turn—138 dc and 68 ch-1 spaces.
