Faeries- Sampler Baby Afghan Pattern

Faeries Sampler Baby Afghan Pattern

by Elizabeth Mareno

This pattern was my very first sampler afghan pattern created in 2012. It has been my most popular pattern to date with more than 150,000 downloads worldwide. It has become a staple baby blanket pattern for many people because it is so versatile. While it is created with bright, faerie colors in this sample, it lends itself well to any color combination you can think of, and the different stitches will keep you interested throughout. 

If you don't want to copy and paste the pattern or deal with the advertising,
it is available as a PDF download on ETSY for $2.00.

  4. I love it! Will put it in my file for just that "special" little one. I don't/won't use Caron yarns. I find that it separates easily and makes crocheting "not fun." LOL! I am partial to "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby, but use "Red Heart Super Saver" just because it is not so spendy, and I can get it almost anywhere.
    Keep up the good patterns. You are an inspiration to many, including me!

  5. Hey Jimmie! I agree...Caron SS borders on evil for a crochet hook! LOL I just discovered 'I Love This Yarn' when I moved to Florida. Before that I didn't live close enough to a Hobby Lobby. But, it has quickly become my favorite go to acrylic. It works up equally well in a blanket, a toy, apparel, you name it...
    Thanks again for your sweet comments. :-)

  8. Will you check row 11 and see if the final count of stitches and repeats are correct? There's a real possibility that I screwed up, but my stitch count was correct after rows 9 and 10. I love this pattern! Thanks

  12. Hi All!

    If you need a copy of the pattern emailed to you, please email me @
    bizzycrochet (at) hotmail (dot) com. It is easier for me to just hit "reply" than to have to write down email addresses and try to remember to send emails out. Cuz, I can guarantee, I will forget someone without meaning to!

    Thanks so much! :)

  13. When the instructions say to: "dc in 4dc", does that mean to dc in each of the next 4dc stitches?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh thank you so much for posting this and giving us the pattern;-) I made one similiar to this over 20 years ago; and can not find the pattern;( And it is so fun to make! We can use up most of our yarn scraps with this blanket and it keeps my interest;-) Thank you, thank you, thank you;-)

  15. So, I am doing this pattern and if I follow what states, when I get to row 23, I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I am only getting 12 popcorn per row, which would make the count. 48, somewhere I am off by 4. Can you help me and see if this is something I am missing?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love this pattern. I am about to begin my third. The first one ended up enlarged to adult size for ME! The next was true to pattern and made for a baby. This one will be for a toddler. I can't wait to get the yarn together and get started. Thanks for sharing! This is my go to baby blanket: so pretty and so much fun!

  17. Dear Miz Biz: Regarding your revisions of the Faerie Baby Blanket, I have 5 words: "You're awesome! I luuuurrve yeeew!" I'd started this and it just didn't look right, plus, I actually got stuck on about row 10 or 11. I decided to just look and see if anyone had posted questions about the same issues I was having and *poof*! You'd already fixed the problem! I haven't actually gotten back to my work yet, but I have every confidence your revisions will solve everything. Thank you so much for taking the time to publish them. I love this pattern and all your other designs, too! Thanks again!

  19. Oops, spoke too soon. I've downloaded the revision and am still having trouble with the final counts of stitches coming out right on several rows. HELP! PLEASE! I need to move on with this thing as it's a gift for a baby who's already here. As ersheffey said a few comments ago, I'm having trouble with Row 23. I made sure I had 252 scs at the end of Row 22 as it called for. That's 63 scs on each of he 4 sides. The math just doesn't add up. If you do 4 scs and Popcorn 13 times, that's 65, plus the last 4 scs the pattern calls for before the corner, makes a total of 69 sts needed to follow the pattern. Am I missing something?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ok. I screwed up again. I just say down and recounted on the afghan I made for the pattern revisions. I came up with 66 total stitches per side with 12 bobbles. I don't know how I missed marking that down. I am truly sorry for all the confusion.

Row 20: w/color A, join w/dc in any ch2 corner, (dc, ch2, 2dc) in sm sp, ch2, sk 2hdc, dc in 2hdc, *[ch1, sk hdc, dc in 2hdc] 17 times, ch1, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner *, repeat * to * 3 times, repeat [-] once, sl st to 1st dc.

  28. I absolutely LOVE this blanket. I am in the middle (almost) of making my third one. I keep forgetting to tell you that on row 23, there are only 12 popcorn stitches, not 13. I have tried everything in power to figure out if I am doing something wrong. If I am please let me know. Thanks

  29. This is so beautiful! I gathered all the yarn and was so excited about starting this blanket. Everything was fine till row 8. I could not get the count to come out correct. I unraveled at least a dozen times, then finally started from the beginning. I could not get the count correct on every row. But I just worked it out and made sure I had the same number of stitches on each side. I am now on row 26 and the count is not correct. I will start from the beginning again. This is a donation blanket and I am determined to finish it. Just printed the revisions, so maybe this will help. I have been crocheting over 50 years and this project has me stumped. Thanks for such a beautiful pattern. Linda

  30. I do not have the yarn for this. Oh darn, that means a trip to the yarn store. I suppose if I must. Hope to get started on this soon. Would really like to make it for my bed. Will let you know. Thanks for the beautiful pattern.

  31. The Faeries Tales Baby Blanket is the prettiest blanket. I just love this blanket and the colors are so beautiful. I downloaded it sometime back, but have yet to start it. Thank you so much for creating such an outstanding and magical blanket.

    1. Hi Patricia! Depending on how long ago you printed it off- you may want to swing by my website and pick up a new copy. All the pattern revisions have been integrated into the original pattern.

  32. Biz,

    I wasn't able to print out the Fairies Tales pattern because I am using a Nook. So if you could let me see the pattern I would appreciate it her much. My e-mail address is:
    lucaspjl0126@gmail.com.

    Thanks,

    Patricia

  33. This is a really nice afghan. I just crocheted one for my granddaughter that was Zebra striped (used Red Heart-Zebra) and a Hot Pink for the borders and interest in the center. It is so cool, but this is good for an older child, preferably a girl, and with all the yarn I have - I can probably find all the colors. I am for all intents and purposes a Yarnaholic!

  46. The blanket is beautiful. I found my yarn never splits using Susan Bates crochet hooks. Boye crochet hooks split my yarn.
