Difficulty: MEDIUM to DIFFICULT
The reason I think this afghan is more for an advanced crocheter is because when you skip two stitches and back up to crochet into the skipped stitches it is difficult to locate the stitches. To work the BPTr stitches in the skipped stitches you must insert the hook to the right of the FPTr stitches, then locate the post of the stitch you need to work around and pull the yarn back up in the same place you inserted it. I hope this doesn't sound confusing. Keep in mind that the front and back post trebles are simply treble (a/k/a triple) stitches worked around the post of the indicated stitch. I wanted to take a photo and show where I placed the hook but given the yarn I used the photo didn't show the stitches very clearly. This afghan has a very nice texture and the post stitches resemble a form of a cable stitch.
