Breaking Bad crochet afghan, part 2 || free pattern


Breaking Bad Afghan || free crochet pattern


Since I posted my Breaking Bad afghan pattern over a year ago, one thing has bugged me. I’ve always wanted to make it more square than I originally had. But once I posted it, things kinda took off and I sold a bunch of them and just didn’t have time to sit down and write up a pattern for a square one. Finally, I found some time, and MAN! I wish I would have done this sooner because it didn’t take me nearly as much time as I thought. I didn’t even have to play around with the pattern at all.

The new pattern actually looks mostly the same as the old one. The new one is just square and the old one is rectangular. The square one works up to about 80″ and works great as a blanket for the bed!

    Love the afghan and its inspiration. I found your pattern while looking on Ravelry after getting inspired by “The Middle”. That show has about 5 afghans on their couch.

    Years ago I made one like the one on Roseanne’s couch. Finding handmade blankets on TV and in movies is a dorky past time of mine.

    Lovely work.

    I am so excited to find this! We have a 1987 Fleetwood Bounder that we actually camp in. This will be perfect, along with the bullet hole decals for the door, and the bumper sticker I bought for my car that says “My other car is a meth lab”.

    What is the total amount of yarn? You say balls and not how much to actually buy. How many skeins of each color?

  5. Sarah says:

    In UK yarn comes by weight normally 100gm balls that’s 310yards would that be enough did you have yarn left over from yours? X

    • Hilary Hilary says:

      Hi Sarah,

      For this pattern, 1 ball Red Heart Super Saver = 364 yd skein and 1 ball Loops and Threads = 268 yd skein. For the RH yarn, you will probably need more UK balls of yarn than indicated in the pattern. There was some left over for each, but I always like to get a little extra just to be sure.
