How To: Falling Leaves Afghan


Folks are loving the Falling Leaves Afghan by Rena V. Stevens featured on the cover of the Fall issue, Annie’s Hello Autumn Crochet. You can get the pattern here.

We did have a bit of a correction on the pattern, so if you got started on it early, get the correction here.

And here is a quick how to for working the main portion of the pattern. I am using a cotton worsted weight yarn so that it is easier to see what is happening.

After working the first row, the stitches are worked in a very similar way.

Remember to always work with the right side facing.

So after row 1, you will fasten off. Then go to the start of the row to begin row 2. If your pattern refers to “turning ch” (we did some updating to the pattern for clarify after the first of November 2022) that is either the skipped stitches at the start of row 1 or in rows after row 2, it will be the beginning chain-5. That was confusing some folks. Just remember to fasten off and always go back to the start of the row to start working the next row in the pattern. You got this!

  1. I’ve attempted to contact Annies over five times to purchase the pattern because the site won’t allow me to.
