FREE CROCHET BABY AFGHAN PATTERN







Your free crochet baby afghan pattern is for a thick, soft blanket worked using a cozy textured stitch that looks complicated but surprisingly quick and easy to work, even for brginners.

The stitches used are single crochet (UK double crochet) double crochet (UK trebles) and chain stitch. hard to imagine that you can produce such a pretty fabric using just these three basic stitches - but try it out and you will be hooked on one of my favourite stitches

INSTRUCTIONS

You will need a 5.5mm crochet hook and double knitting (DK) yarn (UK weight) in 2 colours.

Abbreviations

sc = single crochet (UK double crochet)

st = stitch

ch = chain stitch

ss = slip stitch
