Boho Baby Afghan – Easy Pattern

After making a lot of research for the perfect baby afghan I ended up with a shortlist of 4 beautiful patterns which I shared with you on a previous post.

I loved all 4 of them but I had to pick one for my friend’s baby girl who would be the first baby among our friends. Tough choice, so what did I do? I skipped all research, I didn’t follow any pattern and did something completely on my own. Yes, that’s me πŸ™‚ and I do that a lot! with everything! I must admit that it doesn’t always work that well (but I always love the procedure of doing it), this time it worked quite well. This baby afghan is cute as a button (at least for me).

What I used:

1 skein of each yarn colour (1 bluish, 1 yellow, 1 lilac, 1 mint and one white – but you can always make your own combinations and it doesn’t have to be five, you need 1 basic colour, in my case white, and a couple of other colours to make the “flowers”)

When it comes to babies the yarn of my choice is usually cotton and the size of hook I used for this particular project was 3mm/D

What I did:

It’s pretty easy if you take a closer look. It’s nothing more than a changing colours circle beginning with a magic ring turned into little squares with chain loops. To be accurate:

  • Row 1: 12dc in magic ring, close circle with sl.st. (change colour – optional)
  • Row 2: 3ch, 23dc, close circle with sl.st.
  • Row 3 – white colour yarn: 3chain skip one stitch 1sc. on next {repeat this one more time}, 6ch and 1sc on the same stitch. – Repeat this pattern 3 more times until you have a square motif.

Tip 1: Attach your motifs together while crocheting row 3 in order to avoid sewing later.

Tip 2: If do it again I will probably make larger circles adding a row between 2 and 3 (of course row 3{now 4} should be adjusted accordingly).

For a size 100x120cm. / 40x50in. afghan I did 120 motifs which is a lot of work that’s why I would make bigger motifs next time.

This is what came out

I completely adore this colorful baby afghan, looking at it always makes me smile πŸ™‚

I want to thank my friend Vicky, mother of little Helen (the owner of the afghan) for these wonderful photos. I was so eager to give it to her that I completely forgot to take any. ❀
