Afghan is smaller in this photo than the finished size as this pattern indicates. This photo is to give you a representation on how subtle and sweet the colours are. Normal baby afghans measure about 38″ – 40″ in size.
Each colour has 2 rows before switching colours. You can change this to match your own personality or have one solid colour afghan. You’re the artist, you decide.
