Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
As of the writing of this post, the sweet little baby boy that made this gift for is still not here. That being said, I cannot wait to meet him and I am praying that he is born healthy and happy and that his mommy has a safe delivery and speedy recovery.
In addition to that little beanie and diaper cover, I also made this sweet baby a little blanket. This post is going to be incredibly short as I did not go by a pattern. I simply laid a chain, and half double crocheted in each stitch, for every row.
What makes this pattern a little bit different is that when I got to the length of the blanket I wanted, I decided that I did not care for the width. So, rather than ripping out all of the stitches and starting all over again, I chained one, rotated the blanket on it’s side and started working HDC’s all the way across the side of the blanket. I then worked four rows on that side, rotated my blanket back on the foundation side, chained one, and worked HDC’s along that side. I rotated again and worked four rows of HDC’s on the opposite side. Finally, I finished the blanket off with working HDC’s completely around the blanket and for my final pass around the blanket, I worked a reverse single crochet.
I loved how the blanket turned out and I adored that this blanket managed to have a nice border.
For the yarn, I used Bernat Blanket Brights in the color of Rainbow Shine Variegated. I used a 10.0mm crochet hook and this blanket took me about a week to work up.
This blanket was so much fun to work up and I loved that I wasn’t having to stay in my own little bubble while I worked on it. I was able to work up this blanket while still holding conversations and not having to remember what number stitch I was on.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you did, feel free to give this a like, comment, and share so others can join the fun as well. I would greatly appreciate it! Until next time,
