Baby Blanket

I just finished making a baby blanket for a new grandbaby. They are so much fun to make. (I mean the blanket, although babies are fun to make too). This one is made with the yarn called jaquard because it's supposed to make a certain pattern of colors, but I was a little disappointed with the way the colors came out, it looked the same as  variegated colors to me. And since we already know it's a boy, there was a lot of pink in the colors, I thought more pink than blue, and it didn't look that way in the store, it's hard to tell until you get it crocheted up. Anyway, the pattern is very easy to do you just do 4 double crochets on the front post of the last row, then 4 double crochets on the back post of the last row. It makes the fabric very thick and sturdy to keep the baby warm. And since they live in Oklahoma, it should be a cold winter. The baby is due in Dec. I got the idea from a sweater shown in The Knitting & Crochet Bible, so I just made up a pattern for a blanket using this stitch.


That is Lucy  behind the blanket. She loves blankets, and wishes it was for her. Maybe next time.
