Cozy & Comfy Baby Afghan

"This cozy & comfy baby afghan pattern is so quick to make. Easy Crochet Pattern great for a beginner. Baby blanket is just the right size too. I made a number of these afghans for so many baby boys that were born last year. You might be wondering why I didn’t use a baby blue yarn. I wanted to make something that the family could use for years to come that would look nice draped over the end of a chair or couch. Not that a baby blue is not a beautiful choice, it just seems to be dated once the baby is a toddler and I think people tend to pack them away versus keep using them throughout their house. I made this in Red Heart Grey Heather and Red Heart Antique and another one in Red Heart Grey Heather and Red Heart Real Teal. I like them both and when I let people choose one or the other, it was even on the one that people chose. So, I don’t think you could go wrong with either one."

Instructions

  1. Ch 137

  2.  Row 1: In the second CH from the hook, work a SC. *CH 3, skip 3 SP, SC in next CH* repeat from * until the end of the row.

  3. Row 2: CH 3 *work 3 DC in the CH 3 SP from the previous row. CH 1* repeat from the * until the end of the row. Then work 1 SC in the turning chain.

  4. Row 3: *CH 3, skip 3 SP, SC in next ST* repeat from * until the end of the row.

  5. Row 4: CH 3 and turn. *work 3 DC in the CH 3 SP from the previous row. CH 1* repeat from the * until the end of the row. Then work 1 SC in the turning chain.

  6. Repeat rows 3 and 4 until the afghan is as long as you would like it. I went 34 rows of squares. So it was a square. Make sure to end with the row that is a CH 3, Skip 3 SP, SC in next ST. This will provide the spaces for the border color.

Edging

  1. Row 1: Start with CH 3 *work 3 DC in the CH 3 SP from the previous row. CH 1* repeat from the * Until you have done this around all four sides of the afghan. Corner Note: for the corners complete this pattern 3 times. See the picture below. This helps ease the pattern around the corners without turning up. It still tends to turn up a bit, but it is not too much.

  2. Row 2: Same as row 1, except I did not work extra in the corners. I just worked the normal spaces that were there to work.

  3. Once you have completed the crochet work, weave in the ends. Cut off the excess yarn.
