Fisherman crochet offers a challenge to those who have not tried it. However, you will find that the Galway and Cork Afghans crochet patterns are made up of stitches you already know, worked in different techniques to become unique patterns. The distinctive characteristic of Fisherman crochet is the texture formed on the right side, leaving the wrong side with the appearance of solid single crochet. The Galway Afghan uses these pattern stitches: Low Ridge Front, Knurl, Fisheye, and Fisherman Popcorn. The Cork Afghan uses Low Ridge Front, Cable, Knurl, Fisherman Popcorn, and Diamond. The afghans are crocheted using worsted weight yarn and sizes I (5.50 mm) and J (6.00 mm) hooks.
