Afghan Schematics are for those who already 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 show the photos and lists the materials used for this afghan and
also a description or "Schematic" of how it was created.

The basic Round Ripple Afghan pattern
Written in American terminology
They are also large enough to still be useful after your little one is not so little anymore. I stopped making baby blankets "newborn size" when a friend asked me if I could put 4 tiny newborn size blankets together to make them into one large enough to still be useful.
After deciding to make afghans for the gorgeous new twins in our neighborhood I decided I wanted to make them alike but still individual.
So I decided to make one a mirror image of the other and I am delighted with the results.
I used the basic round ripple pattern and a "V" stitch with picot border.
If I had it to do over again, I would work a 3 row border instead of just two.
These afghans are actually a wonderful peach color and I hate how the computer distorts it but I don't know how to correct that problem.
