Buchanan Clan Tartan
In 1815, the Highland Society of London requested that each of the Highland chiefs send a sample of their clan tartan. This tartan is one of those delivered to the Society between 1815 and 1822.
About Your Crochet Tartan Afghan
The tartan pattern uses medium weight acrylic knitting/crochet yarn. Finished size of the afghan is 42” x 70”.
All stitches are single crochet (sc). To allow for the combination of two colors in one stitch and make a tartan-like afghan, two strands of yarn are used in each stitch. Because up to 7 skeins of yarn will be used at a time while crocheting the afghan, the pattern is recommended for advanced crocheters.
The image above is from the first page of documentation that accompanies the pattern. It is not a picture of the final product and does not represent the tartan-like afghan you will achieve. Please refer to the samples pictured on the Product Samples page for an example of how the finished product will look.
