Baby Boy Afghan

I created another crocheted baby afghan :)
This time for a baby boy!

I just love the scalloped edge to this pattern.
This is the pattern I made up from looking at a photo of one that didn't have a pattern to it.
It is really quite simple.
It all double crochets.
The main colour is 3 double crochets in each space.
The multi coloured border is also worked in the spaces with 3 double crochets.
The mint scallops are 5 double crochets worked in every second space, and slip stitch in every other space....but 6 dc's in the corners.
The grey trim on the scallops are (slip st, chain 2, slp st) in each dc and just sl st in the slp st of the mint colour.
Clear as mud, lol.

I added an extra stitch early in on the afghan.
I knew I could have hid it when doing the trim, but my husband knows me well, as he said it would drive me crazy...and he was right.
So rip, rip, rip....luckily only had to rip out 2 rows.

Then at the end when I was doing the edging, I did 5 dc's in each space...not only every second space...grrr.
As I was crocheting it, I knew something wasn't right...but I just kept on going....until the end.
Realized it when I was done, so this was a major rip out, lol.

But with the mishaps, it turned out beautifully and Lia (the new mom to be) loved it, so that is all that matters.
I did a video on the afghan.
