One Blanket Down, One to Go

Happy Friday to you;)!  I have been working on my double ended crochet baby blankets, but I haven’t been blogging about them because, really, they don’t change much while crocheting.  They get bigger, but the stitch is the same.  I am glad to say that blanket #1 is done and I have started blanket #2.  Yea!!I really do like this stitch..  It makes for the softest, two sided blanket.  One side is one color and the other side has more of the accent color.  I added a double yarn border and crocheted the ends to be a bit longer than the sides for an added  bit of length.The only thing I would change about this cute blanket is that I wish I would have added a few more rows so I would not have had to block it.   Quite a bit of the “magic” stretched out of it.  It is still very nice, I just shouldn’t have been in such a hurry to get done.It lays nice and straight and soft though.  I can’t wait to see little baby fingers coming through the holes:)!

For blanket #2, my daughter in law chose gray and variegated blue.  You can see the texture much better without the blocking.

I just love love love it!  Can you see how it is more gray on the underside and variegated on the top?

This is a slower stitch to be sure, but I think it way worth the extra effort.  I have given directions for this stitch here.  Why don’t you make one for a  SWEET little baby that you know?   You will love it:)

Until tomorrow!

      1. My youngest is 17 and she’s been starting to peek over the sides of the nest to see what’s on the ground below! I’m waiting patiently now for the grandbabies to start rolling in. 🙂
