A few weeks later, Laura posts on Facebook that the baby's room theme would be crayons. She posted some very crafty pieces she was creating that were beautiful! I was very excited as I threw the WIP (work in progress) afghan aside and bought yarn for the afghan I had been dying to make!
A crayon afghan.
I had found this pattern online some time ago and was very anxious to make one. I now had the perfect opportunity! What I love about this design is it is a great way to use up those extra skeins that we always seem to have. Each crayon takes about one skein. Any colors can be used. Shades of pinks for a girl's room; shades of blue for a boy; bright bold colors for a Dora decor.
Here is the finished afghan.
It is a very easy afghan to make but here are a few tips that I discovered along the way while making it.
Practice changing colors if you have not done this before. Here is a good Youtube video to show the steps of How To Change Color While Crocheting.
Here is a photos of the finished blanket in the crayon-themed baby's room. Even if the room is not crayon themed, it works very well in a bright color theme or a room decorated in primary colors!
