AFGHAN BED RUG




My free bed rug pattern was created as a granny square baby afghan for my daughter before she was born. It is a wonderful example of what a useful pastime it is to crochet warm blankets. She is seventeen now, and this blanket has been with her from her cot to her car!

These custom rugs may be created in any size and in many shapes. My granny square baby afghan is worked in a variety of soft colors so it would be suitable for a boy or a girl.
