crochet:: baby blankie

January 28, 2011

This has to be my all-time, most-favoritest baby blankie pattern ever.

This particular one is for my niece, whose bedroom happens to be all in grass-green, with yellow and white daisies, and with the most precious white picket fence attached to the walls. (My brother did not enjoy THAT job – but it looks AMAZING!)  Her bedroom is like her own sweet little private garden…

like year-round spring-time…

Oh, how I miss sunshine and buzzing bees and hummingbirds and leaves on the trees!

I really miss these little visitors!!

they tirelessly entertain me during the spring and summer

the price of admission to their show is merely fresh food…

I gladly pay…

I hope they all come back this spring!!

 

Anyway, here is the skinny on the blankie…

the pattern stitch is merely::

sc & 2 dc in the same stitch, skip 2; repeat across (1 sc at end of row, ch 1 turn)

THAT’S IT!!!

I love to use 100% cotton for babies because the mommies always tell me that this is their favorite blankie too as it doesn’t irritate baby-skin.  I usually use a G or H hook, use a foundation chain of anywhere from 80 to 110 depending on the age of the baby or the size request of the mom , and edge it with several rows of sc in back loops only.  The possibilities are endless.  I have made them in pink, white & yellow; green, blue & white; and several just out of a single-color.  Sure wish I was blogging then, I would have taken photos!

So ~ if you want an EASY pattern with no counting, and no book to reference all the time ~ give this one a try!

Thanks for stopping by :)

      Thanks! This one is made with Bernat Cotton Tots yarn, it’s got a subtle knobby texture that works well for this pattern :)
