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.
Size of Finished Afghan Square: 11.25 inches
Crochet Hook Size: I / 9 / 5.50 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Brand: Bernat Softee baby yarn
- Pale blue
- Baby denim marl
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.
