Crochet afghan patterns are simple in shape, a basic rectangle of crochet stitches, but modifying crocheted afghans can sometimes be anything but simple. With no fit and rarely any shaping, crochet afghans are a perfect blank canvas for learning or playing with new techniques such as cables, Tunisian crochet, motifs, and more. There are three basic sizes for crochet blankets: afghan, lap blanket, and baby blanket.
These measurements are just guidelines. But what if you want to modify a baby blanket into a full size afghan or a large afghan into a crib size blanket?
Easy crochet afghan patterns that are worked in stripes using a single stitch, such as the City Stripes afghan by Leigh Radford , are the easiest to modify. So to create a crochet baby blanket, you would need to work only 69 stitch and rows in the color stripe pattern. Crochet afghans that are worked in a specific stitch pattern or are created by joining motifs are constrained in size to the proportions of the stitch pattern or motif. The original pattern is 5 motifs wide and 6 motifs high. But what if you want to convert this crochet blanket pattern to a lap afghan size?
Pull out your calculator. You can adjust the size of an afghan worked in a stitch pattern in the same way by working more or fewer repeats of the stitch pattern.
