Octagon Baby Afghan

I found this Octagon Baby Afghan pattern at the Woolcrafting website when I was looking for a fun, easy project. I am new to crocheting and I decided to make the blanket for my friend who is having a baby in June.


I got off to a rocky start. After about 9 rows, I discovered that I only had 7 sides to my octagon!! I ripped it out and started over. I am pleased with how it turned out, considering it is only my second project.

I really like the picot edging. It was really easy with Jill's instructions and gave the blanket a nice finished look.

Thanks Jill!!

step by step pictures to go with the instructions

I am trying to make this afghan but for some reason I am having a hard time following the instruction, starting with step 2. Do you have any step by step pictures to go with the instructions? I do better from seeing than reading. Thanks
