Tricolor Twist Afghan

Here is one of the projects I have begun. I wanted to create an afghan with a more romantic colorway. I really like the pattern I am using, it's called Tri-color square. I found it in 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton, and is also in Crochet Inspiration by Sasha Kagan . I tweaked the pattern a little and I am using 3 solid colors consisting of shades of purple and pink with a more lustrous multi-colored yarn (Yarn Bee, First Love, Kisses) for the 3rd row for each square, while alternating between the solids. I am really pleased with how it is looking. What do you think? Thanks for looking, everyone!


  1. I love this colorway! I also have that book and love it. I've made several sample blocks from it and I may try to figure out how to put them together for an "improvisational" blanket.

    BTW...I grew up in Bay City (now live in NW PA).

  2. Very pretty colorway, although I myself tend to favor jewel tones rather than pastel colorways as a rule (though creative rules were made to be broken!).

    1. Ellen, if you take notice of the second picture you will see it is a combination of both pastels and gem tones.

  3. Thanks for the compliment! It's a great block to play around with.

  4. It's so lovely! Beautiful colors.

  5. Grannys beautiful!
    I loved your carpets of butterflies, but I do not understand the art.
