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.
has lots of afghan patterns, this next website
has lots of baby patterns of all kinds, not just afghans and not all knit and crochet.
I am also looking for this pattern I saw it and loved it! If you found it will you please let me know where I can find it I would love to make this for my sister who is having her first child in May. Thank you! Ellie
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.
Can anyone help me looking for the pattern for the afghan peaceful pastels? Would like to make it for my granddaughter. Thanks a lot.

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.
Go to their website and request their catalog or you can find the afghan that your looking for as well.
With the help of other people on line they directed me to http://project- roundripple.html The picture is so close to the Mary Maxim that I will be trying it my self. Hope this is helpful for all of you because it satisified me.

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!
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.

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/
