Thanks for visiting my page! Here is a written tutorial with photos on how to make my Flirt Alert Afghan!

First, with any project you'll need a crochet hook and yarn. Any yarn or hook will do for learning this blanket

For this tutorial you'll need to know how to make Chains (CH), I have a tutorial here! How to make the Double Crochet Stitch (DC), tutorial here! And how to make the Double Crochet V Stitch (DC V), tutorial here!

❈ ❈ ❈ ❈ ❈ ❈ ❈ ❈ ❈ ❈

Starting from the beginning, make chains in the multiple of 8 + 5

I made 157 chains for my example blanket

Row 1: Make 1 DC into the 5th CH from your hook

*Skip 3 CHs, make 5 DC into the next CH

Skip 3 CHs, make 1 DC V into the next CH

Repeat the steps above from * for the rest of this row

Row 2: Make 3 CHs

Skip 1st ST, Make 2 DC into the 1st DC V ST space

*Skip to middle DC of previous 5 DC, make 1 DC V into that ST

Skip to next previous DC V ST space, make 5 DC into that ST space

 Repeat the steps above from * until you only have 1 DC V left

Make 3 DC into that last DC V ST space to complete

Row 3: CH 4


Make 1 DC into the 1st ST

*We'll be making the same STs, just working the opposite ones for this row

Make 5 DC into each DC V ST space

Make 1 DC V into each middle DC of any previous 5 DC

Repeat the steps above from * until you have 3 STs left

Skip 2 STs, make 1 DC V into the last ST/CHs to complete

You would now alternate between Rows 2 & 3 for however long you want your blanket


This is what how the Flirt Alert Afghan should look like when completed!
