Duck Crochet Afghan Pattern is simple and easy behinner crochet pattern and I included a lot of pictures of every step of the process so even the beginner can follow the pattern easily. I used the scallop stitches to create the wavy effect and i explain in details how to make them. :) The blanket reminds of a sea or a pond - you can decorate it with any sea-themed applique, not only ducks :)

Abbreviations and stitches used in the Duck Crochet Afghan Pattern:

CH - chain, SC - single crochet, DC - double crochet.

Gauge: 13 DC in 4 in (10 cm), 7 rows in 4 in (10 cm) (the gauge is approximate and not very important for the blankets).

Make a chain 26 - 26 1/2 inches long (approximately 77 stitches), DC in the 4th stitch

First crochet scallop: DC in the same stitch.

Make 3 more DC stitches in the same one stitch. Total should be 5 DC stitches in one stitch.

Slip stitch in the 3rd stitch from the stitch where you've made 5 DC. the first scallop is ready!

Make the second scallop: 5DC in the 3rd stitch from where the hook is, slip stitch in the 3rd stitch from the stitch where 5DC were made. Make scallops all along the chain.

You will have approximately 14 scallops.The second row of scallops: Turn, CH 2,

DC in the beginning of the CH2

Make one more DC in the same stitch. This is 1/2 of a scallop: [CH 2, 2DC, slip stitch in the 3rd stitch of the sscallop of the prewious row]. Every time the previous row finished with the whole scallop, the next row begins with 1/2 scallop like this.

Make the scallops of the second row between the scallops of the first row (make 5DC in the slip stitch of the previous row).

To finish the scallop make a slip stitch in the 3rd (center) DC of the scallop of the previous row.

If the previous row starts with a whole scallop, finish the current row with 1/2 scallop: 2DC in the last DC of the scallop from the previous row.

The finished 1/2 scallop at the end of the second row.

Change the yarn color every 2 rows. Row #3: Turn and attach the blue yarn. If the previous row ends with 1/2 scallop, start with the whole scallop.

The whole scallop: 5 DC in the slip stitch between 2 scallops from the previous row.

Slip stitch in the center of the next scallop from the previous row.

Make blue scallops along the row. Be careful with scallops and 1/2 scallops at the beginning and at the end of each row - to keep the same number of stitches from row to row.

Make another row in blue color. Continue the pattern: 2 rows of green color, 2 rows of blue color.

The total number of stripes is approximately 29 (58 rows of scallops, because each stripe is 2 rows).

The last row: turn, CH 1 and make SC in each DC of the previous row and DC where the slip stitch was. It will even the scalloped edge.(not completely yet, but you will make another row of yellow)

Attach the yellow yarn and made a row of SC stitches around the entire blanket, finish with the slip stitch.

Note: in the corner stitches make 3 SC stitches in one corner stitch.

The last row in the Duck Crochet Afghan pattern: continue with the yellow yarn. [CH 3, slip stitch in the second from the hook stitch (skip one stitch)]. repeat [ ] all around the blanket. the blanket is ready! :)
