Crocheted Baby Blanket

Started last winter, I finally got around to finishing of my crochet baby blanket last month. Lovely little Georgia arrived safe and sound on Bonfire Night and is doing well. So here's a snap of the finished article.


All the blocks are from Eatons 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afgans. A great book it you want to try out crochet and are totally new to it like me. They have a nice reminder of what the stitches are in the back, along with edgings and how to change yarn colour.



At the start I was relying on youtube videos for each stitch too, but by the end I had the confidence to try for a wavy edge with no pattern at all! It's a real learning journey of a blanket, so I won't worry too much about the blocks that came out a little too small of the massively uneven tension in places!

Hope it keeps some little toes and finger snug and warm through the winter.

Linking up to Finish it up Friday

    1. Thanks Denise - I'm looking forward to a few baby cuddles once we've gotten over the flu currently rampaging through our house.

    1. Thanks Alejandra - they're slightly more subdued in real life. I though it's make a nice change from the baby pink and baby blue the shops are full of.

  3. In both men and women, I think Hermes handbags and the Rolex Watches are used more interchangeably than watches for men and women.It is particularly common to see women wearing men's Luxury Breitling Watches. Me, for example, I wear Original Omega Watches Must 21 of my boyfriend with the black rubber strap.There are many legitimate 1:1 IWC online retailers that sell new certified watches.?At their lower prices, Cartier watches become watches at discounted prices and that's a good thing! Rolex Submariner Watche have splendid styles and designs giving the product a unique style.
