February Afghan Crochet-a-Long Square

New Stitch a Day February New Stitch Afghan CAL Square

The New Stitch a Day Afghan Knit-and-Crochet-a-Long is a year long project that will challenge you to try out some of the patterns we have here on the site. Each month we will alternate between a knitted and a crochet pattern and turn it into a 12″x12″ square. At the end of the year you will have 12 (or more) unique afghan squares you can use to make a beautiful blanket.
