Crochet Peppermint Swirl Afghan Stitches

Special Stitches beg dc2tog = (Ch 2, dc) in next stitch. dc2tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 2 times, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook. Special Technique Interlocking crochet = Work the current round in front of the previous round but not into its stitches. Insert the hook through the chain space of the previous round and into the indicated stitch or chain space of same color round as your current yarn.

As you work the new stitch, bring it forward through the chain space of the previous round. For example, in Round 3 (worked with A), insert the hook in the next chain space of Round 2 and, pulling the stitch forward, work in the indicated stitch of Round 1 (worked with A).

Do not work over or into the stitches of Round 2. Notes 1. Throw motifs and pillow are made with interlocking crochet technique in joined rounds with right side facing at all times. 2. Last loop of each round is dropped after round is joined; next color is returned to the hook and worked in front of previous round. Colors are alternated as this sequence is repeated. Be sure to bring working yarn and loop of color not in use to front of piece when instructed. Do not cut yarn until instructed. 3. A stitches are only worked in A stitches of odd-numbered rounds and B stitches are only worked in B stitches of even numbered rounds.

4. You may find it helpful to enlarge the dropped loop or place it on a locking stitch marker so it doesn’t unravel as you work the next round. 5. Pillow is made in one piece with first side worked in increasing interlocked rounds and second side worked in decreasing interlocked rounds. Pillow form is inserted before last rounds are worked.

We have also included a video tutorial where Mikey shows you how to make the Motifs. We highly recommend that you view the video prior to embarking on the project.

Did you notice that the Peppermint Swirl Afghan has an interlocked Crochet edge? This is a technique that involves crisscross crochet and it’s perfect for Edging all your favorite projects. You can view the video tutorial above to see the technique in action. Click play above to watch now ^^^
