It is with great remorse that I retract my previous statement that, “I don’t make afghans”. Because as you’ll soon see, I guess I do.
I worked for 6 months on this hexagon crocheted afghan and just recently finished another crocheted baby blanket – the STAR. I was commissioned to make this baby blanket by my brother’s future MIL’s niece… I’m not sure we’re even related. But regardless, she will have a lovely hand-crocheted baby blanket for her little guy.
Pattern: Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket by Celest Young
Yarn: Worsted Weight and Sport Weight Yarn from Stash – approx. 3 skeins total
Hook: Crochet hook size H (5.0mm)
I found the pattern to be interesting enough to keep my attention, but repetitive enough to be done while listening to music. The baby blanket grows very fast, but the last couple of rows took about 20 mins a piece and you feel like you’re never going to finish. If the afghan was any larger, I think I’d give up!
I’m hoping the new mom likes this baby blanket for her little tyke. What do you think?

Gorgeous! Beautiful matching of colours. Very fashionable. There is a Danish company, Sebra http://www.sebra.dk/index.php/home.html, which sells crochet items for children – yours is at least as good if not better.
