I recently wrote about the newest little one in our family, Michael.
Here he is with his Aunt Linda. It so happens they share the same birthday!
To welcome him I made a little blanket to keep him warm and toasty when the cooler seasons begin!
Rather than a baby blanket in pastel colors, I opted for a bolder combination of navy blue, brick red and gray; a nice change of pace for a baby blanket!
The blanket measures about 36 inches square.
The blue and red sections use a variation of a shell pattern, while the gray is a basic repeating row.
Combining the patterns in this manner will make the textures in the red and blue sections stand out.
The corners and the borders are simply done.
For the edging I decided to keep it simple! This way the stripes would be the focus!
A little blanket for a little guy!
For more on how this blanket is constructed, see my crochet blog.
Did you have a favorite blanket when you were little?
