The following pattern is an original design by JoAnne Heuschele and is posted with her permission.
This pattern can only be copied or printed for personal use.

A double-ended crochet hook is one that has a hook on both ends.
You can use a size J hook, but it makes an
afghan that is quite heavy, and is a little tiring to make because of the weight.

This afghan is reversible. It is made with 2 colors, and is predominately one of the colors on each side. You will need 2 colors of yarn. White and a pastel color works out very nicely. I used 4-ply yarn from K-Mart, and a size N double-ended crochet hook. Depending on your style of crocheting, you will probably need 4 eight-ounce skeins of each of the two colors to make a 60" x 60" afghan. I like longer ones, and use 5 eight-ounce skeins of each color to make a 60" x 72" afghan. Figure about one and one-quarter ounces of each color for each square foot of afghan.

Make a chain 120 stitches long (for a 60" wide afghan). Go into each chain with a single crochet stitch, and pull through a loop, keeping the loops on the crochet hook (as with doing the afghan stitch).

Now, go to the side where the other hook is, and tie on the second color. Make a loop, and crochet off that first loop that is on the crochet hook. Then crochet off that loop and the next one. Continue with crocheting off 2 loops each time until you have finished the row. There is one loop left on the hook. Still with the same color, repeat these directions for the next row:

*Go into each vertical loop that is the opposite color of the color you are using, and pull through a new loop.**

For the next row, using the other hook on the other end, crochet off that first loop that is on the crochet hook Then crochet off that loop and the next one. Continue with crocheting off 2 loops each time until you have finished the row. Still with the same color, repeat the previous directions from * to **.

Just remember: On each set of 2 rows (crocheting off, then crocheting back on to the crochet hook) use the same color. Stop when it is as long as you like. Seventy-two inches is nice.

I have an afghan stitch dishcloth on my free patterns page:

This type of crocheting resembles Tunisian or Afghan Stitch crochet. You always pick up loops from all of the stitches and then work them all off. I haven't personally done any cro-hooking but it is my understanding that you do this just like with the afghan hook except you can pick up the loops with one end of the hook and work the loops off with the other end... this would definitely give the piece an interesting look/texture.
