This must be the 10th or 11th baby blanket that I made this year! I already lost the count, though I haven’t lost the interest in making/designing new ones.
The stitch for this baby afghan looks fancy and intricate, but it’s not that complicated. The pattern consists of only four repeating rows, which are easy to remember; after you’ve made a few pattern repeats, you won’t even need the written instructions.
I think it’s a cute blanket, though one thing is lacking. If you look carefully at the picture or read the instructions, you’ll see that this blanket has no trim. I tried different ones, but simply couldn’t find the one that would work.
My free pattern is below. You can definetly experiment and try to come up with the edging/trim of your liking.
This pattern is my original design. It cannot be posted on other sites or distributed in any other form. If you would like to share this pattern, you can post ONE image on your site with the link to my original post. You can use this pattern to make items for personal use or for sale. If you sell finished items from this pattern, you must give design credit to Lacy Crochet blog (lacycrochet.blogspot.com). Please, respect my work. Thank you!
