This is a quick and easy baby afghan to make. I just love worsted weight yarn so I try and make most of my baby projects in it. It makes for a warm and heavy blanket. But this could also be made in sport weight or baby weight yarn for a lighter blanket. This is a great project for a beginner as it teaches a great trick for changing colors that you will use a lot for afghans.
For this project, I used 20 oz. of pink, blue, yellow, cream, and green yarn. That is 20 oz. total. I bought one Super Saver skein of each color and used about three fourths of each skein. I used about a half a skein of multicolored yarn for the trim. I used an I hook

Very pretty color combination, and I like the unusual pattern stitch. It gives a nice texture.
Debra, I had to copy that pattern! I think I will enjoy making it up in several different colors. Thanks for sharing and God bless you!
I am going to start this pattern tonight but make it bigger. I have a whole lot of left over yarn from different projects in many colors. Instead of the shell stitch border I am going to leave the yarn ends as fringe at the start and end of each row. It looks like a really fun pattern to do.
I need help please. I've made this blanket before and had no problem. This time I cant seem to keep the ends straight. I know you do the sc in the last stitch. then do you chain 3 then do the 3 dc in the same stitch. That's where its going way off. Any suggestions? Please.
