Video Tutorial: Left Hand Star Lite Crochet Baby Afghan Blanket

Skill Level - Intermediate

Abbreviations
HDC - Half Double Crochet
CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch

PC - Popcorn

Materials
Size H/5 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn - 1020 yards - 932 meters
Tapestry Needle

Popcorn - Each popcorn stitch will consist of 3 double crochet, then join.


NOTE: You can reverse on each round  so the points are not leaning.   If you reverse, you will need to join the popcorn stitch on the same side you are working and push it to the front so the ridge is all on one side.   Leaning Crochet Stitches


Chain 4, Join with the beginning Stitch.

Round 1:  CH, *Work 3 DC through the loop, join with the beginning stitch to form the popcorn. CH 2, complete 6 times from *, join with the beginning stitch.

Round 2: CH, *Work 3 DC through the previous PC, join with the beginning stitch to form the popcorn.  This next part will be the increase on each point. It will consist of DC, CH1, DC, CH1, DC, CH1, DC in the same chain space.  Complete 6 times total from *, join with the beginning stitch.

Round 3:  *Work 3 DC through the previous PC, join with the beginning stitch to form the popcorn. Work a DC, CH 1 in the next stitch, Work the increase at the center point, DC, CH1, DC, CH1, DC, CH1, DC, CH 1.  Work a DC in the next stitch.



There will be 1 extra stitch on each round so it is important to count to so you do not end up with a lopsided star.   I have approximately 25 rounds and will be working a few more, which will make a nice size baby afghan.

  2. You do not say how much lightweight 4-ply yarn is needed. I will need to know how many skeins to buy. THanks.

  4. Teresa,
    I can hardly wait to make this beautiful afghan for my 1 month old Great Granddaughter!! It is so beautiful and I don't think it will be to heavy for late spring/early summer.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Love this blanket! I'm making it soon, but I have a question for you. Did you use the entire 1020 yd skein? If so, this is going to be one expensive blanket to make! I'm buying some really pretty yarn but it's over 3 dollars for only 208 yds.
