Homemade for the Holidays #20: Crocheted Baby Blanket or Afghan

I love to crochet, so when I saw this pattern online for a crocheted afghan I had to give it a try! I made a small blanket for my daughter to use with her dolls, but you can make a full-sized afghan if you wish. I LOVE this pattern. It is so pretty. You can do it all in one color, or use multiple colors making a striped afghan. For this baby blanket I used Simply Soft yarn, but any worsted weight yarn will work. I hope you enjoy this project! I should note that even though I found a pattern online, I had to change it a bit because I couldn’t get the original pattern to come out right. I “fixed” it and believe it is accurate now. Have fun!
