Single And Treble Stitches Blanket (part 1)
New Baby Blanket
Hello everyone! I’ve started a new project! A friend of mine just had a baby, an adorable little boy, and I wanted to make her something special for the little guy. So I’ve picked out some pretty colors and started a baby blanket.
I looked in my Pinterest pinboard for crochet blanket patterns to find something pretty for this project. I came across this pattern by Rescued Paws Designs and knew right away that it would be perfect! Be sure to head over there to check it out to learn how to make it.
My gauge was a tad different than the original pattern, so I adjusted a little for that. In a 4×4 inch section I fit in 13 stitches by 13 rows. So I’m making my blanket with 90 stitches across with a size “K” hook.
About Half Way
Lining up my colors in a nice gradient, I began the blanket. I am using these colors:
- Caron One Pound in white
- Big Twist Yarns Value in medium teal
- Red Heart Super Saver in aruba sea
- Red Heart Super Saver in light blue
- Lion Brand Yarns Pound of Love in denim
This is an awesome pattern, not only because it looks so pretty but because it stitches up rather quickly. Although, I suppose that may also be because a baby blanket is rather small in comparison to all the adult blankets I’ve been making lately. Heheheh!
I’ll be finishing up soon and showing you all the end results, so remember to check back in a couple of weeks for the update.
Feel free to leave me a comment or any questions below. You can also find me on the Family Craft Studio facebook, instagram, tumblr, and pinterest pages. Share photos if you attempt to make the blanket too; I’d love to see them! Happy crafting!
