Written and Video Tutorial for the Cupcake Stitch Afghan
This pattern is easily one of the most adorable stitches to use for a baby/child’s afghan. It’s more of an intermediate level but a more skilled beginner would be able to pull this off pretty easily.
You can use any worsted weight yarn but FaveCrafts used Red Heart Classic (3 skeins) and Super Saver (2 skeins) in their tutorial (Bernat Softee is a personal favorite though). G/H hook would be the easiest.
This free crochet afghan pattern for babies looks especially lovely and comforting in pastel colors. Use the light greens and pretty pinks found in cupcake icing and delicate cakes to create a tranquil sleeping and snuggle situation for a baby in your life. The scalloped design and pretty little crochet stitches show you how to crochet a blanket that has a classic look.
