Crochet a Firetruck Afghan!

This pattern uses worsted-weight yarn and a size H crochet hook. Size of the afghan is 54"W x 52"L.

A graph and written instructions are both included for you to use whichever you prefer. I always prefer the graph and I draw a line with a pencil through the rows of blocks as I complete them so I can easily find my place in the pattern. You can erase the pencil line through the blocks after so you can re-use the graph at another time. Or make copies of the graph.

These are adorable. I have made these before from a different pattern that I lost.

(20)" as in the second photo above. That and the decorative piece on the front at the top of the foot is how the pattern I lost was done. Both are cute!

The size for this pattern is 3-6 months and the pattern is listed as easy.
