This pattern, vintage 1960s from Fashioncraft is officially called Scandinavian Afghan.
(I know that it's a lousy picture, but truly, when it comes to old magazines, we get what we get). This afghan is crocheted with big hooks - size Q and K and it's a colorful piece, employing stripes of Mocha Heather, White, Tangerine, Celery Leaf and Gold. Being a big needle design, it's going to be a fast and easy project to complete.
I was listing in my shop and found myself wondering, is this design representative of a Scandinavian afghan. So, off to Google images I headed. (Feel free to take a look). What did I find? Well, there are a fair number of afghans, but nothing really in common. So I went back to Google and searched for 'define Scandinavian Afghan' and found ... not a thing. So, apparently, Scandinavian Afghan is not a defined style, it's just what someone decided to call it. I always get these images in my head. Like, Marge submits Grandma's pattern and the publishers calls her back and says 'Marge, we need a name. What's it called'. Marge gives it a quick thought ... 'Well, Grandma came from Scandinavia, so let's call it Scandinavian'.
And, there you go ... Scandinavian Afghan. It's available as a Free Download in my shop should you like to give it a try.
