Join me as we go on an adventure to create the most amazing baby afghan.
Each week, I will provide you with a free crochet pattern for an applique with the letters of the alphabet. I will also provide you with instructions to creating the alphabet letter.
Every Wednesday you will make the applique for that week. You will then attach the applique to the blocks that you have made earlier that week. You will also make the letter of the week and attach that to one of the blocks that you have made earlier.
We will continue in this manner until we have finished making 26 image blocks and 26 letter blocks.
Then, we will attach all the blocks to create an amazing, large, beautiful afghan for someone you love!
All it takes it two panels a week!!
Let’s get started.
Here is the free pattern to the base block that we will be using each week.
You will need a total of 52 of these blocks.
For the block, you will need The hook nook small stuff 3 in white and black.
4.00 mm crochet hook
Contrasting color to make an edge to the block
Note: each row will begin with a ch2. This is your turning chain and will NOT be counted as part of the total # of stitches. For a tutorial on this visit https://arterey.net/index.php/2021/07/18/why-does-my-crochet-work-get-smaller-as-i-work/
