Octagons is the motif of the year for me. Quite possibly. I see this design everywhere. Do you?
Here’s a jewel-like afghan crochet pattern for you featuring large octagons and smaller squares to connect them. There’s something about it that is really me. It’s fun, contemporary and elegant at the same time.
I think that the gentle tonal colors in this afghan are beautiful.
Sectional Crochet is a Winner
There are a few reasons to add this afghan to our featured free crochet patterns.
For me the best thing about making afghans, or throw blankets, is that afghans are sectional: 99 Octagon Motifs, 116 Square Motifs. Each section is small and portable. You can easily take your crochet along in your day. This means that my crochet projects will be accomplished so much faster. We all have tons of little waiting times in a day. Yes, I don’t mind waiting in line at the bank any longer. I just take a number. Sit down and crochet a motive. When done, it’s my turn. “-)
See, it’s an easy motif, that creates a jewel-like effect when put together with others.
