Pictured here is an afghan square crocheted in blue and white acrylic baby yarn. This nested checkerboard design works well for crocheting baby afghans, but with a simple yarn change, the pattern could be adapted for use by people of any age.

This blue and white colorway is perfect for baby boys. If you'd rather crochet an afghan for baby girls, a color change is all you need to make it look more "girly." You might also wish to take a look at my heart sampler baby afghan, which is a more feminine design; our master list of free baby afghan patterns offers even more choices.
