Charted Picture Afghans

Beyond Basic Stitches

Charted Picture Afghans are worked differently from traditional afghans. Each row will be worked separately, and you will leave a 12-inch length before beginning each row and before fastening off at the end of each row.

When working Charted Picture Afghans, you will not turn your work. All rows are worked with right side facing.

Single crochet stitches are always worked in the back loop only of the indicated stitch (see Photo A). Double crochet stitches are always worked in the remaining front loop of the indicated stitch 2 rows below (see Photo B).
