If you have ever watched the show on TLC called Breaking Amish or the recent show out called Return to Amish you may recall seeing Mary the mother of Abe crocheting on the show. Her beautiful afghans are one of the highlights of her Amish heritage and several crocheters are asking where they can find the pattern.
These patterns have been brought back from out of publication and are now available to download.
The Amish are well known for their quality handcrafted items. In the reality television show Return to Amish and Breaking Amish, Mary (Abe’s mother on the show) is seen in several episodes crocheting afghans and seems to enjoy one particular pattern. In a recent episode Mary even began selling her work.
Several of us who crochet watch the show wanting to know where to find the crochet patterns so we can make an afghan like the ones Mary creates. After doing a little research here are some of the patterns that are similar to the ones Mary is crocheting on the Breaking Amish show.

Projects include dresses, bonnets, booties, bloomers and sweaters.
