I’m in love with this take on Moroccan Lattice Afghan stitched by Sarah Fabbri. She used the entire 50 mini-skeins of Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn, now available in Hobby Lobby (hello, 40% off coupon) as well as all online Scheepjes retailers such as Wool Warehouse. She bordered the motifs with three skeins of Stone Washed in Yellow Jasper, and used a 3.5 mm hook with the Stone Washed. (In the original pattern I used Stone Washed XL and a larger hook.) Her finished blanket is 28″ x 40″, but some people are buying two packs to enlarge. I really want to make this! Pattern in my Rav Store (20% off with Coupon Code JULIE20) and my Etsy shop.
Moroccan Lattice Afghan CAL starts today, although many have gotten a head start! LindaLucas24 is already finished! But it’s not a race, it’s an easy and addictive pattern and it’s quite fun to see your motifs pile up! Great portable project, too! I’ve extended the 30% off sale price throughout the CAL, good until May 31, 2017 with Coupon Code MLA30.
Our next CAL will be a new design called Moroccan Lattice Afghan, a repetitive design suitable for intermediate crocheters or adventurous beginners. Moroccan Lattice will be a paid pattern on Ravelry. Size in Stonewashed XL is about 44″ x 60″.

For this look, I mounted the afghan onto a 36″ x 48″ canvas that I picked up at the craft store. I folded the afghan around the edges and stapled it to the wooden frame. I love it!
(For those asking, I used a stapler like this and 1/2″ staples.)
