Crocheted Baby Blanket
If I haven't been sewing in my studio, then you will find me in the garden..........
These past few days have been rainy so what better way to pass the time then
I started making a Hippo toy ...piece by piece with the african flower hexagon.
Well I thought I had better have a backup plan just in case this Hippo didn't turn out..
So I started crocheting a cute baby's blanket....
Can't go wrong with this.
First I did a chain about 4 ft in length then I started to sc crochet back.
On the last chain I chained 2 then turned my work and continued back.
1 sc then a dc in the same stitch. It starts looking like a basket weave......
This is a pattern that I just started ...didn't know how it would look .... just had to try ....
I like exploring different stitches....... You don't always need a pattern to follow.
So here is the finished product.
I used Bernat Baby Sport. ......Baby Baby Ombre...........Picked up this ball at Joannes.......
Half way through I realized I needed more so I found the same ball of yard at Wal Mart.
I continued in this stitch till it measured 48 x 42.
It looked a little plain so I added a row of dc all around then did the bobble stitch.
There are different variations of the bobble stitch , but this one is mine.
Love how it turned out. This cute blanket is going to a Great Nephew or Great Niece.
We don't know the gender yet. But I know it will go well with a boy or a girl.
What do you do on a rainy day..............
