Crochet Baby Blanket from Redheart
By Carol Junkins CarolAJ
Ok I finished my baby blanket, haven't crocheted in along time so this is a great that I was able to do this again now that I have arthritis in the fingers in my right hand. Phew ~
skeins 7046 bunny print/ white
skein 7001 / multi blue and pink
1I used one large skein of white and 1 skein of baby green and 1 skein of baby pink yarn.
Also this pattern came with directions for a teddy bear which I haven't attempted yet but may and if I do I will post it with the directions.
2BLANKET: Hook size F ~ for main color G ~ for trim or border
Row 1 ~ (Right Side) Sc in 3rd chain from hook, dc in nest ch. * sc in next ch: rep from * across; turn = 99 sts.
Rows 2-90 Ch 2 (counts as a dc), skip first dc, sc in next sc. *dc in next dc, sc in next sc rep from * to last st; dc in top of ch 2 turn. At end of last row, do not fasten off but sc evenly around entire blanket working 3 sc in each corner join with a sl st to first sc of the round. Fasten off.
3Border: With right side facing and larger hook, attach CB in any sc. ch 1 sc in same sc * skip next sc. 4 dc in next sc, skip next sc, skip next sc. rep from * around adjusting as necessary at corners and end of round; join to first sc. fasten off.
4I just put the edge on the top and bottom of the afghan and put four rows of stripped pattern every 20 rows, sorta made it my own I guess. haha
5Just wanted to show a few other afghans I made many moons ago, can't even tell you how many afghans I have made and given away as gifts for weddings and showers.
Just haven't done any for quite a few years now !
