The Crochet Bearghan

I made this cute baby's afghan last month, but sorry, just finally getting around to showing
you. Do you remember this pattern? It's been around forever. The first version I remember
seeing was done out of fleece, with crocheted parts.
This pattern is totally fun. Of course a few small changes were made along the way. I
made it rounder than the original, by using a half-granny square and sort of fitting it to the
beyond the edge. Changes were made the facial features, and head. Add as many rows to
each square to up the size of the entire afghan, so it will wrap around baby. A border goes
from ear to ear, changing colors as needed.
This is good old Red Heart Super Saver. I like using this yarn for charity items, because
you just know a baby's blanket is going to at some time of it's life get thrown into a washer
and dryer. This yarn may not be fancy, and is sort of looked down on..... but it sure does
hold up.....

Oh my gosh! I think your bearghan is my favorite EVAH dahlin'. I love the colors and the little facial bits you added are just adorable.

Awesome!

Mine too! I want it! Can I have it? Will you sell it to me? Did you give it away already? I'm so lazy!

If I make this, I may have to consult with you about what you did. It's totally cute. Love the colors too.

Is it rude for me to ask for something that is made for charity? I think it is. Well, I guess i'm just RUDE and horrible then! :(
