Afghans come in many shapes, sizes, colors and styles. There are patterns galore, or you can make your own to suit your style!
Not sure if this is blanket, garmet... scarf??? It's a baby sleeping bag of sorts, good for new borns. This was knitted with 2 strands of yarn to give it the marble effect. The top has buttons to accomodate a variety of baby sizes and temperature. I made the little matching hat to keep the head warm, too!

Simple, white, cabled afghan. I used acrylic yarn for this blanket.
A baby blanket made for a newborn. The pattern is a seed stitch border with the four center quadrants in checkerboard knits and purls. Unfortunately forgot to photograph this up close before I gave it to the purchaser. The pattern is in Stitch 'n Bitch and uses a heavier wool yarn. The person I made this for chose this softer, baby colored acrylic yarn.
I really liked this afghan for many reasons. It was one of the free patterns available at Joann's. I believe it is also on the LionBrand website. The blanket is made in strips, each utilizing a different pattern, weight, and type of yarn. It gave me a lot of experience using all of these different yarns as well as the patterns and color work.
