The Simple Baby Afghan Tutorial is a super easy crochet project for beginners. Create this multicolored and cozy afghan for the baby or kid in your life. It'll become their favorite nap time blankie for sure!

In order to achieve the beautiful dynamic colorways, you'll crochet this afghan holding three strands of yarn together. It's an easy way to create an impressive effect! 

This project is super simple for new crocheters because it is done entirely in single crochet stitches! It's the perfect mindless pattern to do while you watch TV, listen to an audiobook, or chat with friends. And the finished result is a blanket that will be cherished for many years to come.

I think this pattern is great! It reminds me of a knit pillow pattern knit with three different strands, so I think they could be really pretty put together! Gift idea!

I loved this pattern! It was so easy and went so fast. I used orange, black, and white yarn, and it looks lovely! I am so pleased.

I love the pink, gold and white colors used in this blanket. It was done by holding the three strands together while crocheting. Clever idea. I would like to do this as baby blankets are my current projects. Here's the link to the pattern http// == -easy-baby-afghan.html.
