Good and Evil Granny Block Crochet Afghan
The color block and exchange in this pattern is one of the most unique and eye-catching that we’ve come across. If you’re up for a bit of a challenge and want to do something completely different, this pattern is for you!
Which color combo will you do?
Yarn and Colors: Most of my color placement was random and I used various balls of scrap yarn that had lost their labels. I did stick to one rule. I separated all of my colors in light colors, medium colors and dark colors. Dark colors made the shadows. I used the light colors in contrast to the dark colors. I used the medium colors to make the static center square design. I did make a few static squares using some of the light colors and it still works. I am currently using a mixture of medium hues to make a strip blanket and that’s working, too. The possibilities are endless and there are no rules. Changing colors, hues, arrangement, it all leads to something unique and you.
For this pattern, I will be using 3 different colors to simply demonstrate where color changes should take place.
You will be turning your work after EVERY round. This is very important.
