V-st Baby Afghan

Image of V-St Baby Afghan Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

This afghan is a gift for a friend who is expecting a baby soon. It combines v-sts with sc to form a unique look. It is easy to do but you need to be prepared to weave in a lot of ends and to read a lot of repeats of rows. Basically you are going to do 4 sets of multicolor rows and 3 sets of green rows but the center green section is missing 2 sc rows in the very center of the afghan.
