When I started the Christmas CAL I was downloading the introduction before part 1 was released, I noticed they also had a baby blanket in the files that I couldn’t resist. I planned to start one as soon as I finished the Christmas CAL but a few days after downloading and printing ready I got a request for a baby blanket.
No particular request for type, no specifics other than colour, which wasn’t to be traditional but autumnal. Oh this was so meant to be I couldn’t wait I had to start it as soon as I could.
I planned to use my stash as I had odd bits of all the colours I required but then I saw my favourite yarn on offer through The Knitting Network, so I picked 5 colours, paid and true to knitting networks form it arrived the next day. Yarn was quickly wound into cakes and that was it I did as much as I can in-between waiting for the new parts of the CAL to be released.
It was beautiful to work up, the soft yarn of Style Crafts Special DK and the amazing pattern that kept you wanting to create the next section because they all just stood out and popped with each different colour that was added.
The only thing that I changed on the pattern was the final round of the border, and that was only because it didn’t sit right with the colours chosen so I simply added rounds of single and half trebles to finish.
What a beauty it is, and was nice to make a baby blanket away from the norm of pinks, blues, lemons and mints. I will be making more of these that is for sure. Thank you The Wee House of Crochet, Lynda’s Craft Room & The Crochet Sanctuary for creating such beauty again.
Have a lovely evening, take care and stay safe.
