Soft worsted weight yarn, in 6 oz. (170 g) skeins [Boy - 4 skeins yellow, 2 each of blue and green; and Girl - 4 skeins yellow, 2 each of orange and pink]; and size I (5.50 mm) crochet hook.
What was your inspiration?
One of my nieces was having twins, a boy and girl. She and her husband really love the Caribbean, so I wanted to create something bright and colorful with a Caribbean theme.
What are you most proud of?
It's silly, but I love the cute little stuffed frog I found to photograph with the boy afghan! I love the way the afghans turned out, too!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The animals, plants, etc., are cross-stitched on an afghan stitch (tunisian stitch) square. Be sure to weave in all the ends securely for baby's safety.
The squares are done separately and then crocheted together using a connect-as-you-go technique, so the only sewing is the cross-stitch.
The finished size is 44-1/2" square.
This is an easy pattern, available for $4.00, and is written in U.S. terms.
