Moroccan Tile Afghan


Tamara Kelly


The Moroccan Tile Afghan is warm, cozy, a fast V stitch pattern to crochet, and full of color! It’s the latest free crochet blanket pattern on Moogly – and I’ve included guidelines for 6 different sizes!

The pattern here is written for a throw/afghan sized blanket, as that’s the size I’ve made. Based on the throw, I’ve created the chart below with info to make 5 other sizes! (Since everyone’s gauge is different, and the type of yarn used can effect the outcome as well, these are only guidelines – you’ll need to make your own gauge swatch if you need it to be exact!) And of course, you can make the whole thing in only two colors if you like – it’s all up to you!
