Zig Zag Afghan Reviewed by Nicole Cawlo on 2013-06-10 *****
This worked up really nicely. Easy pattern to get down and finish quickly. I only used two colors for this - Bourbon and Herb Garden. Both of these are in the painterly line of Homespun so the colors change throughout to give it a really neat look.

This was much easier to make than I had expected! I got the hang of the pattern quickly.
I made it with three colors because it was a graduation gift for someone going to Pitt and I wanted it to be in the university's colors.
(I didn't think to account for the fact that I used a worsted weight yarn instead of Homespun, so it came out much smaller than it should have, but it will make a great lapghan!)

Zig Zag Afghan rather unique Reviewed by Annette on 2013-02-17 ****
Easier than it looks. Thanks to the other reviewer who mentioned 7 tr is not same as 7 tr cluster. I used rococo, colonial blue, barley, and wildfire. At first I thought the wildfire would not work well since it is a painterly yarn but it turned out quite nice. I think the design has a southwest sort of look to it. The only thing I do not like is the changing of yarn every two rows (and having to hide the tails) but that is the nature of the design.

I made this afghan in southwest colors and it is fabulous. It is interesting to crochet, works up fast, and is not very hard once you get the hang of the pattern.

I did make this afghan. It was relatively simple once I got started. Word to the wise - remember that the triple 7 crochet is NOT the same as the 7 triple cluster. I read too quickly over the directions and thought it was the same stitch. Needless to say, it didn't work! I hope that might help someone else. Also, I used Wildfire as one of my colors - it is a "painted" yarn. I should NOT have used a painted yarn for this pattern. The colors in the afghan pattern change so frequently that when the yarn changes color(not so very gradually) to what they call slight shades of blue and if you have started another row that is supposed to match previous rows in color - it will look COMPLETELY different. I had to throw away bunches of yarn to get back to the basic "Wildfire" color that I needed. I was so worried that I would not have enough to finish...I did - just barely. All of my other colors were heathered and they worked very nicely. So just stick to heathered colors for this pattern. Another warning with this yarn - knot it at the ends it WILL fray out quite badly. I'm done with the afghan, it is beautiful but I would not do another in this yarn.

Love this one. Made it with suggested colors. The pattern is easy and the Homespun works up quickly into a nice heavy afghan. Beautiful and fun to make.

I thought the pattern was going to be difficult since it said Intermediate, but I am finding it very easy to use. I'm making my afghan for a baby so I'm using a different type of yarn and a different sized hook. Looks good so far.

I absolutely LOVE this pattern. I made it for a wedding gift with different colors, and now want to start one for my daughter. I do wish the pattern was a little tighter though I love the design. Just afraid fingers, etc. will get caught int the holes!

Zig Zag Afghan Reviewed by Barbara on 2008-11-06 *****
Absolutely LOVED this pattern. Thought it was going to be very complicated, but after you establish the pattern, you can crochet without checkig the pattern until the edging. I changed the colors b/c I wanted a "Christmas" afghan, so my colors were white, red, green & light grey while also holding a silver cotton crochet thread at the same time. Turned out beautifully, & it looks like you've done such interquit work.
