Free Crochet Baby Afghan Blanket Patterns-Easy Level

Updated on December 29, 2012

Kynlea's Fall Inspired Baby Afghan

I'm doing it again.

After the amazing response I received from my first crochet pattern, I got motivated to start making more of my own patterns. Granted I don't know how long this motivation will last exactly, but I'm enjoying it regardless. not only did I receive a HubNugget award for that Hub, but from promoting it during the voting period, I managed to have my pattern placed on a website that I've looked at for years to find new patterns. I was tickled. It doesn't take much to make me happy all. If you haven't seen the Hub I'm referring to, it's a crochet pattern for a Christmas Stocking that I've made for my little family, and for some others. I've recently placed a link to a printable version. So anyway, I've been working on a few things here and there. If you've read any of my other Hubs, you may remember me saying before that I have a short attention span, so any new patterns I bring to you from now on, will most likely be either a small item, or at least baby sized LOL. I really don't work very hard patterns, and so starting out with my own, they will be on the easier side, as is this baby afghan I'm sharing. I made this one for my little girl, and call it Kynlea's Fall Baby Afghan. I hope you enjoy it.

    Thank You Jean and Craftdrawer. It's a very easy pattern to work, and it doesn't take long to finish. Those are 2 big pluses for me lol. And this looks great in many colors. I've just started one in bright blue, and bright green for my niece.
