Still in 2018 we are still associating color with sex. It is so funny how we can become slaves to what we think people want us to think. Yep, blue is typically for boys but as stated above, this would be be okay to give a girl as well.

Not to long ago I found a sale on ebay. They were getting rid of discontinued yard. Baby First was one included in that sale. I got a yellow color. That's perfect for a bit of a girl. It truly is an extremely soft yarn. This is going to turn out a very pretty gift.

Beautiful and attractive! Any new mom and baby would be pleased to sport this Sea Blue Baby Afghan! Like most handiwork it can be tailored to the situation. The directions look well written and to the point...short and sweet. I love the way the solid color highlights the stitches too! I do wish the artist would have included the multiples with the pattern. The most difficult part of creating this blanket is choosing the color!

Very easy directions with not too many steps. Even though the yarn used in this project was discontinued, I think that any yarn of the same weight should do the job. I think it would just be a matter of selecting a color of your choice. Great pattern for a baby blanket.

They discontinued that yarn, can anyone recommend a good replacement

A very nice pattern for a baby blanket, which is made with chunky or bulky yarn to help it grow faster. It can make a nice gift for baby shower or for your own baby. The pattern looks nice and easy, it uses V-stitch, there is explanation of how to make this stitch. Other abbreviations are also explained making crocheters life easy.

This baby afghan seems so easy to do as it is done in v-stitch,one of the easiest crochet stitches to do. We're double lucky the pattern is just right on the front page. Thanks.

Love this adorable blanket! Is there an easy way to make it smaller? Thank you!!!!


I am a beginner ... can anyone explain the meaning of v-st?

At the beginning, it explains how to do a v-stich. Its a stich put in previous stitch in previous row.
