This pattern includes both a charted graph and row-by-row written instructions to crochet this adorable baby hippo afghan. In the files I have included the graph printed on one page as well as the graph printed on 4 pages so the graph boxes are a little larger and easier to read. With the row-by-row instructions you don't have to count each square because they're already counted for you. You can easily make this blanket gender specific or gender neutral simply by changing the background color. Lavender/light purple or light green would be good substitutes.
At a gauge of 4 stitches and 4 rows per inch the finished size will be approximately 32x32" before any optional border, which is a good size for using with a baby stroller or carseat or on the floor for playtime. At a gauge of 3 stitches and 3 rows per inch the finished size will be approximately 42"x42" before any optional border, which is a slightly larger sized baby or toddler blanket.
To make this afghan you will need worsted weight yarn, size H/5mm or I/5.5mm crochet hook, and a yarn needle to weave in yarn ends.
