Did I warn you I’d be knitting like a fiend, or did I warn you?? 🙂
This blanket has been most of what I’ve been working on for the last 10 days or so… and I loved it!
– Type: Baby blanket for a crib
– Date made: December 2016
– Pattern: My own, invented as I went. 25″x36″, or so.
– Fabric/Materials: 100% acrylic yarn. Fairly soft.
– Trim: More of the same yarn
– Time to finish: About a week and a half
|First I crocheted a rose. This was by request, since it’s for a baby girl. I then used white to make it square, and then picket up stitches along one side, increased, and started knitting. This became the top edge of the blanket.|
|Finished, but I still have some stray yarn tails, and it’s got some weird rippling going on that will disappear once I block it.|
|The completed blanket, pinned out for blocking (after washing the blanket, you pin it down in the right shape and dimensions while it’s still damp. Then it dries in the right shape). The crocheted scalloped border is complete.|
I’ll be posting projects I complete to sell, as well as those I make for myself and my friends, so watch my Etsy page if there’s something you like!
Most sincerely yours,
