When I was a kid I remember my mother crocheting several baby afghans that had little animals in the squares. Now that I am crocheting I would love to make one, but she has no clue what the pattern was. Would appreciate anything anyone may have similar...I'll know it when I see it. Thanks!! :hook :crocheting

OK -- Got a couple of pics from my mom of the one blanket she has left... maybe these will help...

:think Now I'm on a mission to find this afghan, it sounds so cute. Here are some animal squares:http://www.anniesatt...l?prod_id=22249
There used to be an animal squares afghan available on AOL hometown but I have no idea if there's a way to get those now that its closed down.
This blog has several really cute animal squares http://crochetroo.bl...het-square.html

I hope you find what you're looking for, good luck!

I have been looking forever for a leaflet called " Crochet Animal Motif Blankets, Pillows and Bibs" by Annie's Attic #874411

Could this be the one you are thinking of? I'm still trying to find it.

That looks a lot like it I think...need to look over it some more but that is the closest I've seen. THANKS!!

The animals were differnt in the one my mom has - she still has one of the blankets itself...maybe she can take a pic of it for me and that might help.....

In the late 70's there was an afghan kit called "Baby Zoo" afghan. It was made in 5 panels. The panels were afghan stitch blocks and a shell stitch. A bunny, duck, elephant, kitty, lamb, and teddy bear were cross-stitchon the solid squares. I don't think ever seen this one in a book before. I do have the pattern for it.

Yes, this is the one I have been looking for, I may just bid on it, thank you!
I did find another auction on ebay but I am not sure how to post a link to it. It is a vintage pattern for a baby animal crib cover, has a puppy, lamb, deer, kitten etc, filet in squares. Sellers name is Hollywoodpatterns and she states it is out of copyright and in public domain, she is selling a copy of the pattern. It is a very cute pattern and I am wondering if it is true and in public domain if it would be free somewhere online. It's listed as "Vintage Crochet Baby Crib Cover Pattern Lamb Pup+"
Item number: 200302720950

I think you and I are looking for the same pattern. I found it @ Hobby Lobby in A Year of Baby Afghans, August, I believe. The book was $12.00. As it was the only pattern I wanted in the whole book, I was hoping to find something similar on this site.or, I'll wait until HL has another 40% off coupon.

I have a book with that type of pattern. It's called Color Bright Animal Afghans. You can find it at Michaels. I got mine off eBay for a fairly reasonable price.

This afghan may been a kit the only suggestion is make solid squares and copy the cross stitching of the animals to it and make your favorite block between the pattern ones. Many companies that produce crochet or knit kits for afghans no longer exist.
