Madalyn Rae Baby Afghan Pattern

My friends, Mandy and John, are expecting their first child– a baby girl to be named Madalyn Rae who was scheduled to arrive on Feb. 17, 2012.  Her appearance, while still forthcoming, gives me the perfect opportunity to knit this five-color baby afghan for her.  Its vintage chevron design is all the rave and pleasing enough for new parents and new parents-to-be with discriminating taste.  Notes for a baby boy’s afghan are included.
