a little crochet too

This is my all time favorite baby afghan to crochet. I can't even tell you how many I have made over the years, but I can tell you that the book it comes out of it beginning to look a bit worn. One of the reasons I like this afghan so much is it only takes 14 ounces of worsted weight yarn and you use a size K hooks. So it works up really fast. Over the past couple of years I have been buying the Caron 1 pounders for it. This ones is mint green. I do know that its for a boy but the mother hates the color blue so green was the request. By the way the pattern comes from the book Quick and Cozy Afghans.

What a nice baby blanket! I've found that I prefer to knit most things, except blankets/afghans for which I vastly prefer to crochet! Great job!

Beautifl afghan. I feel like carissa too. I make a few knitted ones but most of them are crochet because they work up so fast. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Me too. I usually do crochet my afghans. Later this year I plan to crochet my favorite adult sized afghan. I have been working on things that I want to put in the fair so that with some luck I can win the top prize ( the Sweepstakes). Last year I had the points but I didn't have enought items, so I have been working on it sense August.
