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:)
