Three crocheted baby afghans and one mug cozy: the work of several months and lots of love!
Clockwise from upper left: Will Mildren and his blue and yellow baby boy afghan, Little Miss Bailey’s afghan — a pink, ruffly afghan for a little girl with two older brothers–a mug cozy with crocheted button, and Little Miss Robertson’s afghan–a ruffle-edged afghan made to match custom curtains.
About the Crocheted Baby Afghans and Mug Cozy
Both Baby Mildren’s and Baby Bailey’s afghans are essentially the same patter, with a couple minor changes. Baby Mildren’s has a blue stripe throughout that lends an offset pattern to the cluster stitches, while Baby Bailey’s afghan has rows and rows of clusters and a fun, girly ruffled edge for the first girl born to parents of two boys. There were two very fun and quick crocheted baby afghans!
Baby Robertson’s crocheted baby afghan uses chain stitches in a dark color to outline the pink and yellow shells, and this pattern always gets comments due to the unique look that this chain stitch row adds. I love the thick, indulgent ruffle edge on this pattern!
The mug cozy pattern I created myself after looking at lots of mug cozies online. I crocheted the button myself so if i needed to warm up my coffee, I wouldn’t have to worry about a metal button or a plastic button that might not like being microwaved.
