a great pattern i have made this one twice

 

Mar 25, 2012

I think this is a really vibrantly colored blanket, and so it should be a favorite for any growing baby. I make baby blankets regularly, 16 grandchildren and now lots of my daughter's friends are having babies too.

I reallly like all three versions of the baby blanket. I have just recently learned to crochet the granny square baby blanket and I will definitely do these! Fern

I love that this afghan has three vesions. It looks like it is quick and when all of your daughters' friends are having babies, there are a lot of requests for me to make baby afghans.

I really like this one better. To me it is a lot quicker to make and if you have to stop quickly its easy to figure out where you are at.
