Blanketing, part 4

This is the most recent blanket I finished for Matt and Michelle's baby. I finished it shortly after the little guy came (early), but it took me ages to mail. And even more ages to post pictures.

Why yes, yes, this blanket does have a hood. I have high hopes that the baby will consider it a cape when he gets big enough to consider such things.


Also, I adore this stitch. In American stitches it is a single and two doubles (in British it's a double and two triples). The pattern can be found here.

That's a nice looking blanket. I like how you explained the stitch in both terminologies. AWESOME.

Wow, you are genuine crocheter. I didn't really realize, somehow.

Love it brings back memories of my nanna she was always making me clothes/blankets when I was little

That's what you were holding out for. BRILLIANT. Being compared to a Nana.

So pretty! That sure is a lucky baby.

Did you have a good trip to DC?

Wow, that is really impressive, Sherry! I love the hood! It is so cool, I just bookmarked the pattern even though I don't have a clue how to begin. Did you use any books to learn how to crochet? Any recommendations?

It's gorgeous. It almost (almost) makes me want to have another blue baby.

Sherry, the blanket is darling! I'd love the pattern. I clicked on your link, but I'm supposed to log in to the lionbrand yarn site. Can you help me out?

Jenny said...

You have very smart fingers.

We LOVE the blanket, it has the coolest stitch ever! We will work on the cape concept with Callan.
