The original pattern found on Lion Brand Yarn, Pound of Love, package called for a blanket with a hood. I decided to omit the hood. It was in one color. I also used contrasting matching colors to add stripes to the afghan. This is a shell pattern.

To make this beautiful baby blanket, you will need: ten different colors of yarn, a crochet hook, and scissors. I simply followed the traditional granny square method. It takes about 4 hours to complete and you will need 2 balls of each color yarn.

I am looking for a pattern for baby afghan from the Mary Maxim catalog. It is called Peaceful Pastels afghan. It is a rainbow of baby colors and is crochet. The design is a star shape and the rainbow appears by itself when the work is crocheted. You use 2 stands of yarn together when working afghan. Anyone out there who can help me?

I don't have exactly what you are looking for but I may be able to help you. These two websites are connected.

http://www.bevs  com/afghans.html

has lots of afghan patterns, this next website

http://www.bevs  ge.com/baby.html

has lots of baby patterns of all kinds, not just afghans and not all knit and crochet. Once you get to the website go to the section "Baby Blankets". The first listing is for "Beth's Little Star Afghan". If you are a fairly experienced crocheter you can probably figure out how to get a rainbow effect by changing the colors. Good Luck!

Lori,

We are sorry, but this is a copyrighted pattern, and it is against the law to post it online as has been done. We have contacted the website to have the pattern removed. As you can see, if all the patterns we work to design, test, choose just the right yarn for the pattern, pay to have that yarn shipped to us, etc. were available at no charge, we would be out of business in a hurry!

Editor's Note: The pattern she is referring to has been removed.

Why doesn't Mary Maxim sell their patterns in a book rather than only with a kit? The kits are reasonably priced but sometimes I"d rather buy my own yarn! I had bought this kit once upon a time but after I made it, I can't remember what I did with the piece of paper. Books are a lot more durable.

Most craft stores have online sites, with free patterns available. I've gotten some off of Michael's, Joann's, Hobby Lobby, etc.

As mentioned above - do a search for free patterns.

I have made several simple crochet baby afghans by doing the basic Granny Square with a size P crochet hook and continuing with the Granny Square, using 6-7 skeins of yarn. It really depends on how big you decide that you want it to be. I have used the Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn for a few and it really crochets up pretty and frilly with little puffs of cotton! They make an adorable gift for a baby girl! My favorites colors are the Tutti Frutti and Creamcicle. The larger hook makes it work up really fast. I have also made a couple using Red Heart's camouflage and banana berry (variegated blue, yellow and green) for baby boys. Their dads appreciate not having frilly items for their boys! I hope that this idea helps.

I am looking for a pattern or kit for a triple crochet shell baby afghan. I bought a kit many years ago but now can't find a kit or pattern. Can anyone help me? The shells sit on top of each other so a circle is formed.

Try going to:

http://knitting-crochet.com/

They have a place where you can post what you are looking for. Click on "Keep on Learning" and then "Find and Seek" and then post your request. All the ladies crochet and knit and they are wonderful at finding patterns for others.

Crochet hook size G

Several colors of soft 4 ply worsted yarn (about 20 oz yarn total)

Baby Sized - Chain 152

ROW 1: 2 sc into 2nd ch from the hook. *Sc into next 6 ch, skip 2, sc into each of next 6 chs, 3 sc into next ch, repeat from * 8 more times. Sc in next 6 ch, skip 2, sc in next 6 ch, 2 sc in last ch. Ch 1, turn. (RIGHT SIDE)

Row 2: from now on sc in the back loop of each stitch. 2 sc in first sc, *sc in each of next 6 sc, skip 2 sc, sc in next 6 sc, 3 sc in next sc (which should be the middle of the 3 sc of row 1). Repeat from * 8 more times. Then sc in next 6 sc, skip 2, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in last sc, ch 1 and turn. Repeat row 2 for the entire afghan.

Repeat Row 2 throughout. Finished blanket should measure about 4' long or desired length. Change colors after every 4 rows or so. This is a very flexible pattern.

I have seen ripples with color changes mid-row.... just depends on the look you want.

I looked on their site but they only have it for sale as a magazine back issue for 5.99:

There is a picture, maybe someone will have a similar pattern for you. Or there are a bunch of one skein projects here for crochet that include baby blankets and afghans: http://craftibl  -skein-projects/
