I have been busy lately crocheting baby RR (round ripple) afghans. These are so much fun and a great way to use up stashed yarn or scraps you may have. These were all made using Aggie May’s pattern from Crochetville. There are several different free versions of the RR afghan pattern available on the Internet.
I created this edging which has a layered-look as I used a sport weight yarn and a worst yarn.
Using sport/baby yarn, Ch 3 in any space on the RR, Dc in same space, Skip 2 sts, Sl St into next st. Repeat working *Ch 3, Dc in sm st, skip 2 sts, Sl St in next st.* End with Sl St to base of first Ch 3. FO.
With new worst yarn, work same edging as above but work from behind first edge row. They creates a ruffled layered look.
Here is my baby blue scrap yarn RR that I crocheted using up several different skeins of miscellaneous yarn that I’ve had on hand.
Both of the baby afghans above were crocheted for 3rd Annual Afghans for NICU Babies Christmas drive. Kathryn over at Crochetville is requesting baby blankets for this year’s drive. You can read more about the drive here if you’d like to help this very special cause.
This last RR afghan was crocheted for my Granddaughter Ana. I am thrilled to share that Little Ana was born Sunday, September 13. She is so cute with dark brown hair and a button nose. She is the most precious little baby and we are all feeling so blessed with her healthy arrival.
