I just started crocheting a few months ago and have mostly been doing small projects. At the beginning of July, I took the plunge and started checking out patterns to make a baby blanket for a friend who is expecting.
I saw this pattern ~ Cool Breeze Baby Afghan ~ on Red Heart's website and knew it was the one I wanted to make!

Red Heart also has an instructional video that really helped make the pattern easy to understand (newbie that I am!) and visualize each step of the pattern.
There are two basic stitches ~ double crochet and treble crochet. The pattern creates a "fan" ...
that crests into a wave ...
The colors blended together just beautifully!
I can't wait to start making more afghans! :)
