You can even have fun and mix up the colors to fit the theme of the babies' room or your own personal color preference. The pattern includes instructions for the afghan and a coordinating pillow that adds a little decoration to a rocking chair. Every mom wants to create or receive a keepsake for their infant and this afghan and pillow set is the perfect option.

Maggie Weldon used a classic teddy bear image to design the adorable Baby Bears Afghan and Pillow Pattern. The color changes and delicate edging make this pattern an intermediate skill level. Each teddy bear block is made separately with a worsted weight yarn, and then pieced together with crochet stitches. Each block is about 12 inches wide and 14.5 inches tall, with the crochet afghan finished size being 39 inches wide and 46 inches long. The Baby Bears Afghan and Pillow Pattern create a standard size baby afghan, so you don't have to worry about excess blanket when using the afghan to wrap your infant.
