Bow and Arrow Baby Afghan- Free Crochet Pattern
This pattern is more advanced with treble crochets, skipping and crocheting in front or behind stitches and the crabstitch. The crabstitch is crocheting backwards, but don’t let that scare you! There is a link to a great tutorial.
This is a very neutral pattern with an “x” stitch and arrows. It reminds me of bows and arrows.
