How many ounces of yarn to make this? I do not have Red Heart Baby Hugs, but I have a lot of 5 oz skeins of light/DK yarn I would like to use up. They are all different colors, so a pattern like this would be perfect.

It's a 4.5 ounce ball )

This is such a great pattern for a "security blanket". So many little ones like to carry around their baby blankets around as they get older. My friend's granddaughter uses the blanket I made for her as a blanket for her dolls. The texture of this blanket adds a plus for a one color blanket and it is not hard to do. Thanks for the pattern.

This sedge stitch pattern does offer a lot of texture. Being able to create a baby blanket like this with only one skein of yarn is also a plus. Any baby would be happy to have this to add to the security blanket collection. It never hurts to keep some extras.

Currently crocheting is my new best hobby to partake in. I love looking for projects that can be completed in a short time. I also enjoy learning new techniques. This project satisfies both. Thank you for the free project.

Hi lovely pattern thank you. Are these instructions American or English? Sorry can't really tell. Although think its American. I am making this now for a premature baby girl. So beautiful. Thanks Sue

Hi Suegun! You are correct, this pattern is written in American terms. -Krista, Editor

I just love crocheting baby afghans. The yarns are so soft and cuddly and they always look so beautiful when completed. They are also quite small so are relatively quick to make which is always nice to do in between larger, more complicated projects. This one is such a lovely pattern and looks really cozy and warm for our South African upcoming winter.
