I used to watch Call the Midwife on TV, and when I saw this pattern, I decided I had to make it. I had never done Fillet crochet before, and am still nervous about thread crochet, but this was a thin baby yarn that I used. I believe it was Bernat Baby Soft. I really love how the blanket came out and ended up making a couple. The other one was trimmed with a chocolate brown, because I ran out of the white. I just gave it away to a friend who has a brand new grandbaby.
The pattern came from Little Monkeys Crochet.
I had a bunch of different colors of yarn that I wanted to use up after completing another blanket and used most of them on this! It was a very basic granny square, and quick to work, but I love the colors! I used Red Heart With Love, which is probably my favorite acrylic right now.
The pattern came from Daisy Cottage Designs, and while she calls it a baby blanket, really, it’s big enough to be a lap afghan.
This is a blanket I finished awhile ago – no recipient yet, but maybe a REALLY good friend will have a baby sometime. It was a pain in the butt to finish, as each row required ending the yarn and starting a new one.
I got the pattern from Susan Carlson at Felted Button. Love the way it turned out, but tucking in all those ends! 🙂
I did mainly use the called for yarns – Martha Stewart Wool Blend and Cotton Ease. Loved the feel of them both. This was the first pattern I used that made the loops that braided together.
