Hi-
I am new to this forum. I've crocheted over 40 years. Recently a neighbor showed me a beautifl crocheted aran afghan she had made quite a few years ago. It is beautiful. I am looking for a similar pattern as she has no idea of the name or where she had gotten the pattern. I'm not sure if it was made in panels. It has popcorn stitches that form a diamond shape in part of the panels. In other parts of the afghan there are front post dc that also form diamonds..very pretty.

If anyone has any idea of the pattern name, book it may be in-I'd be forver grateful. Thank you.

She says she made it from Red Heart. Maybe it's a free Coats and Clark pattern. It looks like the sort of pattern that might have appeared on a handout or a yarn band. You can Google them for their website. You might also try some of the other manufacturers' sites (Lion, Caron....)
