Now for the second part of this weeks update. I began an Ocean Waves Afghan this week. Well I shouldn’t say afghan because I am only doing a baby blanket size. There is a Crochet Along Challenge with Mikey from the Crochet Crowd at Red Heart Yarn. Although I am not participating in this challenge I really fell in love with this afghan and wanted to try it.
My sister-in-law is having a baby boy giving me the perfect opportunity! This is my second attempt at making a blanket. The first was a granny square blanket. I really LOVE this pattern.
It is so easy. It works up super quick. I have only worked on this blanket for two nights. If you have never made a blanket I suggest this one. Mikey breaks everything down. Shows you how to do the stitches, how to fix your mistakes and has charts to help you understand the stitch work.
I used Bernat handicrafter cotton in blue, beige and brown. This is a great choice of fiber for a summer time blanket. If you want a warmer blanket you may want to use acrylic.

Hope you enjoy this afghan as much as I do. Have a great day!
