I just wanted to show you the baby blanket I finished this Tuesday and which I handed over to a friend from my Dutch class. She absolutely loved it!!!
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
The finished blanket is made of 7 x 7 crochet squares which measure approx 12cm across. The finished blanket size is approx. 84cm x 84cm. The squares are attached with the pale pink Apilou yarn.
Some close-up photos to show the details. I crocheted a simple shell border all around.
I was quite pleased with how even my crochet looked! It was a lot of work to block each of the 49 squares individually but it was definitely worth the effort.
For the finishing touch I made a long crochet chain with 2 mini squares to wrap around the blanket so it would look nice!
I had to work hard every day to get it finished within 2 weeks, which meant I didn't get much time to do any other crochet. Now that it is done, I can finally get back to them...
Do you like making blankets? What are your experiences? What is your favourite blanket style/pattern? Do you prefer making modules (such as squares) or working on one piece?
I would love to hear your opinions, please leave me a little comment below. I look forward to reading them!
PS: More catch up posts coming up shortly!!!
