I am absolutely in love with this Sea Glass Crochet Afghan Pattern! Working on this blanket has been such a joy with its simple and repetitive stitch pattern that lets your mind wander as you work … so restorative and meditative. I also love the colors which remind me so much of sea glass. Hope you love it as much as I do!
Sea Glass Crochet Afghan Pattern
Here’s what you will need:
- US H-8 / 5 mm crochet hook

- scissors and yarn needle
Finished afghan measures 54 in. wide × 73 in. long but can be customized to any width by working any even number of stitches.
Note: Carry colors up the side of your work, do not fasten off at the end of each row.
With CA, chain 154 sts (or work a Foundation Double Crochet of 152 sts and continue to Row 2).
Row 1: Work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook and each chain across, turn and drop CA — 152 dc.
Row 2: With CB, ch 1 (does not count as stitch here and throughout), work 1 sc in top of first dc, ch 2, *skip next 2 dc and work 1 sc between the 2nd skipped dc and the next dc, ch 2, repeat from * across, ending with 1 sc in top of the turning chain, turn and drop CB — 76 sc and 75 ch-2 sps.
