How to Crochet Mud Cloth Afghan Throw Blanket

The Mud Cloth Afghan Throw Blanket crochet tutorial video teaches you how to crochet this beautiful throw using the free pattern from Red Heart Yarns. This artisan throw was inspired by the patterns seen in ancient African mud cloth. Although this throw is not woven like traditional mud cloth fabrics, we love that we can enjoy and create gorgeous patterns with our crochet hooks. In this video Marly Bird focuses on the chart in the pattern to teach you how to do the stitches AND how to read a crochet chart or crochet diagram. The words for the pattern are also available to give instructions along the way as well.
