Baby Afghan

Completed! This was a quick and enjoyable project. This is the first time I used the Pound of Love yarn. I really like it, its very soft and was a great price after couponing.

I have a 50% off coupon for this week at Michael's so I think I will add another "pound" to my collection.

Its a nice soft and light blanket but quite warm. This size will cuddle a little tyke for several years.

And look at how much is left over. This certainly was a good use of this skein!

Onward to the next project.

Addendum - 2/27/10 - I was asked about the pattern for this blanket ...the stitch I used I saw on the blog Sarah's Sweet Hearts, her post of February 17th - - third picture down you will see the most darling, beautiful blanket ... the stitch is called the "Fly V" stitch, 2dc, ch 2, sc all in the same space. My blanket measures 37 X 37 inches.

I used a K hook and a starting chain of 110. (My next blanket will be smaller) What I did was

1. Fly V stitch in the 2nd ch from hook, *sk 2 ch, Fly V* across, a dc in last st, ch 2, turn.
2. DC in turning ch, *Fly V stitch in ch 2 sp of Fly V* across to turning ch, dc in turning ch, ch 2 turn.

Continue with row 2 to size you want. I added four rows of single crochet around the entire blanket.
