For those of you who like to make mile-a-minute afghans, this pattern is absolutely great, it works up pretty fast. And it is easy to remember after you have made several rows.
It is my own adaptation of a lace I have. You can make the panels individually and then join them with a nice contrasting edge, a little baby afghan would look darling in panels of the same color or let’s say two pink, two yellow and two green. If you add some tiny ribbon roses sewn all over the dc rows, you would have something worthy of the most elegant of baby showers!
With Worsted weight yarn or baby yarn in Baby Pink
and size F hook, ch 25.
Row 1- Skip 3 ch (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in 4th ch from hk an d in every ch to end (23 sts).
Row 2- Ch 3, 1 dc in each of next 4 dc, ch 3, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, *1 dc in each of next 5 dc, ch 3, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc, ch 2, 1 dc in each of next 5 dc, ch 3, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next sc, ch 3, rep from * across. End row by making 1 dc in each of last 3 dc. Ch 3, turn.
Row 3- Dc in 1st 2 dc, ch 3, 1 sc in top of sc of prev row, ch 3, 1 dc in next 5 dc, ch 3, 1 sc in top of sc of prev row, ch 3, 1 dc in each of last 5 dc. Ch 3, turn.
Continue repeating rows 2 and 3 alternately for pattern.
Another thing you could do is to make series of little satin ribbon bows in the colors you use for the little afghan and sew them in the dc rows either in the same color row or in contrasting rows. You would have a really precious baby blanket!
