I know that I say this a lot about crochet patterns, but this one is probably (most definitely) one of my favorite designs.
I made this for two friends of ours in Iowa who are due with their first child here in the next month. She is exactly 10 weeks ahead of me.
I was glad I was able to deliver this baby blanket to them in person while we visited in Iowa. They were some of our closet friends, so of course I jumped on the chance to make something for their little tot!
I used this pattern as a guide. It was a very easy one to follow. It looks like it is really complicated, but it is just front and back post double crochets alternated. Once you get the pattern, easy peasy!
Plus it was simpler since I only used one color of yarn, so I didn’t have to switch skeins that much. It took me about 3 weeks to complete this.
I used a J hook.
I went through 7 skeins of the the light gray yarn and half of a skein for the dark gray border.
This yarn is absolutely perfect for baby blankets. It is super duper soft!
Peter and Noelle almost didn’t get the blanket because Tom and I were so obsessed with how the pattern turned out. It is perfectly simple but detailed uniquely.
I just may have to make George one. (If there is one thing we will never run out of, it is blankets. He will be a warm baby!)
I am almost done with another blanket, and then it will be on to making things for George’s arrival!
