Here it is, my latest creation for my Sister-in-Law, Fiona who is expecting her second baby in March next year. I have loved making this from Drops Paris 100% cotton. I used 3 balls of each colour plus one more of the beige for the finishing border and edge.
This blanket weighs 750g and feels lush and creamy and yummy. I must say that the cotton was a bit on the "splitty" side, but I didn't let that stop me.
I used a 4mm instead of the recommended 5mm crochet hook to make each treble stitch a little tighter and more snug.
I only added this edge at the top of the blanket and made it up as I went along. I quite like how it's turned out. A little crown like edging fit for a little prince or princess.
As you can see this little blanket had to come out on location with me for it to be shown in its entirety. I like the colours I chose, simple and solid.
I especially adore the combination of mustard and turquoise.
So there it is, just needing to be wrapped up and put under the Christmas Tree for baby bump.
I loved making this and miss not having it to work on already, I think I might just have to make a grown up version of this sometime.
Thanks so much for visiting
See you all soon
