I’ve looked around the web and have come across some delicious blanket designs that are so inspiring. I thought to myself that it was time to tackle a blanket of my own. Mind you, when I decided to do it, I didn’t have a pattern or color scheme in mind. I wasn’t in the mood to learn a new stitch or to read a pattern. I just wanted to put yarn to hook and start to crochet away. I did do a rough sketch of a design.
I decided a baby blanket would be a good start. I wanted to experiment with colors more so than with the stitch so I stuck to using single crochet for the whole blanket. I used the Sugar’ n Cream 100% Cotton yarn in bright colors and my 4.5mm hook. I loved the whole process. I wanted to create a baby blanket that was different and fun.
I ended up adding more stripes to each side of the original size blanket because it was simply too narrow. It was a tricky transition at first but once I did a border around the entire blanket, I just kept on plugging away until I got the desired width.
I learned a lot from just digging in and trying to figure out how to best add each color. I added the colorful circles at the very end to complete the design. It’s not perfect but I love how it turned out.
This is my first attempt at a blog so please be patient with me as I learn how to take better pictures and add content. Thanks for stopping by!
