Afghan Schematics are for those who have some experience in crochet.
The afghans were all made using a Basic Round Ripple afghan pattern.
The variations of each afghan is listed in the "Afghan Schematics"
found on the individual photo page of each afghan. This post shows the photos and lists the materials used for this afghan and also a description or "Schematic" of how it was created.

Using the Basic Round Ripple Afghan pattern,
work rounds with increase and decrease as directed
Rounds 1 - 12 double crochet each row.
Round 13 Popcorn stitch (use 4dc to form each popcorn st) popcorn st, in starting dc, *(double crochet in next dc, popcorn st in next dc,) around, working *popcorn st, ch 2, popcorn st,* in every point.
Rounds 14 - 26 double crochet in each st
Round 27 work same as row 13
Rounds 28 - 32 double crochet in each st
Round 32 *(double crochet, picot, double crochet in same st, sk 1 st,) around.
Basic hat pattern (or use hat pattern of your choice)
This is a version in greens with a plain border that could be considered appropriate for a boy. Use the same materials and Schematic except for the colors and the border which is a round of Popcorn stitches followed by a round of double crochet. You may wish to change it up a bit. Add a third round of double crochet if you have enough yarn. Or work 1 round dc, 1 round with the popcorn pattern and a third round in double crochet. I will caution if you work the popcorn sequence as the very last round it will tend to curl under. The one time I did that, I ended up using two popcorn rounds to make it lay flat. It looked really lovely but all those popcorn stitches, when I wanted to be finished... I found them a bit tedious.
