This baby afghan is super easy to make. There are only two repeating rows and the stitches involved are single crochets, double crochets, slip stitches and chains.
But despite the simplicity of the crochet techniques used, this blanket looks pretty enough to be given away as a baby gift or made for your own little darling.
This stitch is a multiple of 5, plus 2. It can be easily adjusted for bigger size.
