The Dreamy Baby afghan can be made in any size to suit your needs. It featured stripes of Tunisian crochet with a border in regular crochet. The Red Heart Dreamy yarn is fuzzy and soft making for a cozy blanket. Tunisian Top Stitch does not roll, so there is no need to block the finished blanket.

There is a video tutorial for a scarf featuring the same stitch if you need help with the Tunisian top stitch. Find it HERE.
