How to Make Crochet Baby Blanket from Redheart

Step-by-Step

  1. I 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.
  2. BLANKET: Hook size F ~ for main color G ~ for trim or border
    Chain 100
    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.
    Fasten off.
  3. Border: 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.
  4. I 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
  5. Just 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 !
  6. Don't forget you can make stuffed animals as well for baby gifts ! Made these for my girls when they were little ~ don't have directions now but if you go to Red Heart free crochet patterns then put in search stuffed animals you can download the directions.
