The humble 6 day kid blanket has over 30,000 unique Ravelry downloads and has been crocheted by hundreds of people. No two of those afghans are alike.

If you see this pattern on Pinterest or elsewhere made in different colors, know that those crocheters took this pattern and changed the yarn and used the formula given in the pattern to adjust the number of chain stitches to create a blanket that looks much different than the one shown on the actual pattern.


Some of the crocheters who made ‘ghans off of this pattern didn’t change colors every two rows like I did, but instead changed every four (or another number) rows.

My Ravelry link is not broken. The pattern that you download here is the right one. All of the photos on this page (and pinterest) were made using the pattern you can download here.

Multiples are given on the pattern for you to make adjustments for gauge, or to make a larger afghan. If you need help understanding how to do this, feel free to email me.

And of course, you can use whatever colors you like.

And you can change those colors after however many rows you care to. Or even make the whole thing in one color.
