Baby Wallpaper Afghan

This baby wallpaper afghan is inspired by Yarnspirations.

The rows with the variegated yarn peeking out is actually two layers… The variegated is crocheted into place and the white layer is crocheted over top of it revealing the peek a boo spots of the variegated popping out. Reminds me of a lot of baby wallpaper for a nursery.

In my example, I have used Bernat Satin snow combined with sweet pea.

I have provided an instructional tutorial in both right and left handed versions to illustrate how to do this easy stitch. The trick is to watch the edges of the afghan.

This project is in multiples of 6… you keep chaining in 6 until you get to your desired length and then chain 11. This will allow the pattern to stay in balance on both sides for the edges. I have provided my rough diagram that I made for myself for this stitch.

  1. Hello,
    I work better from printed patterns. Videos cannot be taken with me in my tote. So many are asking for a printed pattern. Could you supply one please?

  2. The pattern is very pretty and I am trying it, but like one of the previous posters, am having a difficult time at the beginning and ends of the rows. I’m kind of winging it to be honest. Going a little slower in those particular sections and showing the details better would be an immense help. The diagram makes no sense to me sorry!

    • I like this pattern and am watching the video repeatedly to catch how you start each row and finish each row. I cannot read your graph and have tried to write out what you say in the traditional format of crochet patterns. I am still flummoxed! Is it possible for you to focus on those two aspects of this terrific pattern, or send me the details via email?

  3. Mikey my question is why not just do a shell in the contrast color instead of all the burying and I hope you write out directions as I don’t have the strength to learn charts as they frustrate me

    • Yes I agree. I don’t like diagrams, they become a big fuzz to my eyes. At least you can cover up a line or high lite where you need to be!!!!!!

  4. The diagram is great !! However, would like to have a copy of the written pattern as well, as I use both of them together. Makes things much easier for me.

    Thanks for the videos.

  5. Hi Mikey I love your videos I have learned so much πŸ™‚ is there written instructions? Thanks πŸ™‚ I am slowly but surely learning how to read diagrams πŸ™‚

  6. I love this!! I make lap blankets for our nursing home, and I think this would be a good pattern to do with maybe white and red for the women and a burgundy with white for the men. I just need to figure out a border to go around it to cover up the edge. I am not good at boarders. You made it so easy with the way you teach. Love the chart! You rock as always!

  7. Wish you would include printed instructions as I am still not comfortable with charts. Sixty year habits are hard to change.
