Front and Back Post free crochet pattern



 Pin It
I had planned to make two baby blankets for two friends that are having a baby. Both don't want to know the sex of the baby and I wanted to pick this color. My neighbor end up having the baby about three weeks earlier. I made her a blanket and the head band with a pink flower. It is a girl and her name is Madelyn. She is so cute!

This pattern is so easy. I wasn't planning to do this pattern, but a friend of mine suggested and it turned out great!
 

I started with 196 chains. After that I did 5 Front Post Half Double Crochet (FPHDC) and 5 a Back Post Half Double Crochet (BPHDC).

Continue that way until the end. You can decide how big you want your blanket to be.
 
Sara, repeat crafer me has a video if you like to watch.

It is that simple and beautiful!
 
Happy Crochet!

  14. Very beautiful and thoughtful of you.
    I'd love to try making a baby blanket too. What do you think is the best type of yarn to use? acrylic, cotton, lighted worsted, worsted.

    Thanks!
