Would anyone know how to make the navajo blanket pattern smaller for a child. The pattern is on the forum, but so far no one has answered my question.

Magsterone,

reference to your question about the navajo afghan.  if you are talking about the one with the diamond pattern, i made this afghan for a baby a couple of times and just used baby yarn with the pastel colors and it turned out great.  it makes a large blanket, because i used the same amount in the beginning chain that the adult one called for.

Hi,

I purchased a crib blanket made in this pattern years ago and was also given the instructions by the women complete with the downsizing.

For a baby blanket she chained 124.

For a crib blanket she said to chain 144. (56x44) counting the 2inch fringe. This is the crib blanket I have and it is beautiful.

She also had notes on the instructions that 20 stitches makes another diamond.

In the full size afghan. Chain 245 for a small (60x48)

                                         Chain 285 for a large(72x52)

If you like using the H needle. Chain 185 or 187 or for a longer afghan chain 205.

Hope this helped.

How many skeins would you use for the baby size?

  Hi, DarbyCreek:     I have been looking for this pattern for a long time.  I did have it but since we moved I cannot find it.  I made the pattern in Navajo colors years ago when I made it and I would like to make another one.  The colors you used are really pretty.  If you could give me the pattern I would appreciate it enormously.   Sincerely,  Mysteries

I enjoy this pattern, also.  What I did is make a graph.  I used paper with a grid.  Marked it with X for the double crochet.  I looked at the afghan I had made & from this I decided how big I wanted to make the baby afghan.  I, too, tried to find someone who had written one out.  With this you don't need a pattern except for figuring out how many SC you will need to get started.  After this you can follow the graph

Fantastic!  You have figured it out.  I used a graph and put an X for the DC. I then made the graph the size I wanted.  I have one I started

a couple of years ago because it is so big.  I grow tired of working on it and put it aside.  I am just about finished with it.  I like your colors.

And, yes, it has helped me.
