It was a bit of a late night marathon to get this one over the line……………………2.30am bed time this morning…..on the day of my cousin’s baby shower! There were a few episodes of breaking bad and ladies of london to keep me entertained but I made it! Well that’s the short story – the long story is that I’ve been home for the past 5 days while my van was being fixed. And in between a bit of cabin fever since I had the 3 little ones all week and no way to get out of the house – so there was time to crochet.
It’s finished and I love it. First time using this pattern and am going to start a girly version tonight since I love the pattern so much. It’s really easy and if you can do a granny square and double crochet into a stitch then you can do this one.
The colours I used were parchment, daffodil, teal and glacier. We don’t know whether the baby is a boy or girl so I picked neutral colours and I’m not usually a fan of yellow but it just was the perfect little pop of colour in this blanket. And I don’t really do neutral colours but I really love how this turned out.
Now the pattern has 5 rounds of colour and 1 of white but I looked through people’s projects and saw that many had changed this and I preferred that look so decided to have less yellow and more white and it looked great. To finish I just went around with single crochet in 2 different colours. If I had more time and could keep my eyes open I might have done all of the colours as a final edge but love how it turned out. Oh and I would have blocked it but it was a chilly day and I knew it wouldn’t be done in time. That and I had to sew 2 presents for a birthday party my big girl was going to at the same time as the shower. Anyway, the mum-to-be loved it and so do I.
And would you look at this little guy! Such a cutie. He had a great time.
