Crochet Octagons & Circles Granny Baby Afghan

This baby afghan pattern is of my own original design. I created it as a baby shower gift for a new baby boy.  I chose to go with a nontraditional color palate of muted blues, greens and grey for his stylish mama-to-be.

To accompany this afghan, I also created matching booties and an ear flap hat.  I look forward to her reaction!

The instructions consist of octagon granny blocks that are sewn together along with diamond-shaped blocks to create a beautifully detailed afghan. The finished afghan measures approximately 33 inches long x 26 inches wide.
