Irresistible Baby Afghan

Lion Brand® Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

1 ripple + 6 1/2 rows = 5 in. (12.5 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog (dc dec) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

COLOR SEQUENCE
Work *3 rows with A, 3 rows with B, 3 rows with C; rep from * for Color Sequence.

1. Be sure to check your gauge. If one ripple measures less than 5 in. (12.5 cm), change to a larger hook.
2. For edging, work as many sc as needed to keep Afghan flat. If necessary, use a larger hook to work edging.
3. Block completed Afghan by dampening with water, then laying flat to dry.


AFGHAN
With A, ch 114.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as dc), (dc2tog) 3 times, 2 dc in next 6 ch, *(dc2tog) 6 times, 2 dc in next 6 ch; rep from * across to last 8 ch, (dc2tog) 3 times, dc in next 2 ch – 6 ripples.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, dc in next st, (dc2tog) 3 times, 2 dc in next 6 sts, *(dc2tog) 6 times, 2 dc in next 6 sts; rep from * across to last 8 sts, (dc2tog) 3 times, dc in last 2 sts.
Rows 3-45: Rep Row 2, and continue changing colors according to Color Sequence. Note: You should have 5 stripes of each color after completing Row 45. Fasten off.

Irresistible Baby Afghan Reviewed by on 2015-12-29 *****
I made this for a co-worker for a baby shower and she loved it. It is not the standard baby afghan pattern, but that is why she liked it. Very quick and easy to work. I did have to substitute the pink for a darker color because the lighter pink was no longer available but it turned out great.
