Modern Heirloom Baby Afghan

"This is one of my favorite stitch patterns to use and it makes such a beautiful gift for an expecting mother. Recently, I learned how to make the linen stitch, which is also called the moss stitch, granite stitch, and the woven stitch. Once you learn the techniques, the crochet projects are endless. Today, though, we will be making the modern heirloom baby afghan and it is super easy. A handmade item can have such a lasting impact. This baby afghan has a modern look to it, but at the same time, is a beautiful blanket to pass on as an heirloom-if it lasts that long."


Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet GaugeGauge is not critical for this pattern. I had 17 stitches per 4 inches. To make the blanket wider or narrower, increase or decrease by 2 stitches. This afghan uses even stitches. To make this longer or shorter, simply increase or decrease the number of rows. However, to keep the symmetrical look of the afghan, be sure to count out the rows and whatever you do on one end, you should repeat on the other end.

Finished SizeApproximately 26 inches X 26 inches

Materials List

  • 2 Skeins Baby Pink Red Heart yarn approximately 728 yards
  • 1 Skein Dusty Grey Red Heart yarn approximately 300 yards
  • Size H Crochet Hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors


CH 126

  1. Starting with the Baby Pink

    Row 1: SC in 4th CH from hook, *ch 1, SK ST, SC in next ST. Repeat from * across, ending with a SC in last ST.

  2. Rows 2-10: CH 2, SC in first CH-1 SP in previous row (Note: not in the stitch itself, but in the space that was created by the CH. To do this, insert your hook in the space, yarn over and pull through the yarn and complete your SC), *CH 1, Skip 1 ST, SC in next SP. Repeat from * to last CH where you end with a SC, turn.
