My baby sister, Stephanie, is about 7 months pregnant with my first niece, who will be called Annabelle. I am so excited! I think she is going to look just like my sister with thick, dark brown, curly hair, and giant brown puppy dog eyes. I will not be surprised if she also passes her stubborn attitude to Annabelle.
I wanted to make something special for Annabelle. When my sister and I were little, our favorite blankets were the afghans that my Grandma Richardson made for us one year. Mine was long and had all the colors of the rainbow, and Stephy’s was a huge granny square, colored with pastel yellows, greens, and white. We slept with them every night and kept them until they literally unraveling. Anyway, I decided to make Annabelle an afghan since I loved mine so much as a little girl.
I started out with 61 chain stitches and did a simple single crochet throughout the whole blanket.
I finished it off by taking one of the colors and doing a simple single crochet border around the blanket just to give it a little bit of contrast. It is about 36 inches long and 28 inches wide. It’s a pretty heavy afghan, but that’s okay since Stephy lives in England. I think it gets pretty cold there.
Have a wonderful Sunday-Funday!
