If you are a fan of patchwork blankets or quilts, you have to take a look at the Giant Dahlia Afghan pattern. This colorful, popular quilt pattern is interpreted in your choice of two entrelac methods for a truly spectacular showpiece. The entrelac blocks on each round grow outward from the crocheted pinwheel center to create a large round motif that is finished with your choice of a small edging or optional striped corners.
Giant Dahlia Afghan pattern features instructions for making the entrelac segment of the design in either single crochet entrelac or Tunisian crochet entrelac. Choose the method you are most comfortable with. Single crochet entrelac worsted-weight afghan is made with size J hook; Tunisian entrelac baby afghan is made with size K Tunisian hook and size H standard hook. Made with smaller hooks or larger yarns for a more dense fabric, this design also makes a gorgeous wall hanging-instructions for making and mounting a crocheted wall hanging with this design are included in this pattern.
Giant Dahlia Afghan is an intermediate skill level pattern that will have you challenging your crochet knowledge. Creative afghans are fun to make. This pattern will give you joy and a sense of accomplishment when you see the finished beauty hanging on the wall or draped over a nice chair. Don't let this beautiful flower crochet afghan get away.
