Camo Afghan Crochet Pattern
I love the effects of this afghan design! My amazing grandma made up an afghan pattern that was worked diagonally and I thought it was really cool. My nephew's birthday was coming up and I needed to make him an afghan and wanted it to be different and fun. This was the finished project and everyone kept saying how much it looked like Camo - so that's where it's name came from.
