Here is a baby afghan in light blue that I recently finished. I used a different kind of yarn this time. Instead of baby/sport weight, I used cotton yarn. The cotton yarn has a little more "heft" than the lighter weight baby yarn.
Here is a close-up of the stitching. Not sure if there's a name for this stitch, but it's simply one single crochet and one half-double crochet in the same stitch, then skip a stitch. It made for an interesting texture, don't you think?
I also put a border on this afghan. First I went around with single crochet, then with double crochet, then another row of single crochet.
Into the last row of single crochet I made a scalloped border.
