Baby Waves Crochet Afghan FREE Pattern
Baby Waves Crochet Afghan FREE Pattern: 4-Color Chevron Crochet Afghan
by Kristin Omdahl
Afghans are hands-down my favorite gift to give someone. My cousin is pregnant with her first child right now and I wanted to make her a special blanket, large enough for baby and mama. I waited to begin until she finalized the colors of the nursery. She chose yellow, white, gray and teal. You could easily make this any combinations of colors, 2, 3, 4, or even make it a scrap yarn project. I would love to make one for my bed in a solid color next.

I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.
