My friends are having their third baby. Third… Baby… Eww. I am not a kid person. Never have been. Never will be. I have a niece whom I enjoy terrorizing. Well, she can be cool sometimes… just sometimes though.
I have crocheted a baby blanket for both their girls so now I’ve made a third one for their upcoming third child, a boy. I try to not do the typical style of baby blanket for them. The first was a hot pink, black and white bubble blanket. The second was a rainbow colored star shape blanket. Now for the third, I’m making a basket weave teal and grey blanket. I found the pattern Basket Weave Baby Blanket from Craft Passion.
I went back and forth on deciding the colors for this blanket. You’ve got the typical blue, yellow or green. Blah! I let Hubby decide when we got to the store since I couldn’t make up my mind. Who better to pick colors for a boy blanket than another guy? Right?
The pattern is simple. An always repeating pattern and I can watch tv while I work. It took me a few months to complete, mainly because I can’t stick to one project but bounce around to different ones.
I tend not to pay attention to details when I first start projects. If I had, I would have realized that this afghan pattern is flipping huge. How is this made for a baby!?! I decided the width of the blanket is now the length. I even returned a skein of yarn because I didn’t need to make it as big as instructed.
Without further ado… Baby blanket!
