Katelyn whipped up this Moderne Baby Blanket to celebrate her not-so-baby-sized baby brother’s college graduation. The pattern calls for DK weight yarn, so to modify to an afghan size, Katelyn used size 11 needles and a much bigger yarn — Cascade 128 Superwash — and followed the pattern as written.
Katelyn used four skeins per color but ended up dipping into a fifth skein for the two largest sections. She crocheted along the edges. You can access most of the pattern for free online, with the exception of the mitered border. The full pattern is available in Mason Dixon Knitting.
Look how big the blanket turned out to be!
