I finished this 30″ x 30″ white baby blanket using some very basic white yarns. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch and it finished up in about two weeks. I did not use a pattern. I wasn’t quite sure what to do about the border then I found the fluffy yarn in my stash and just did a double crochet stitch all the way around after doing a single crochet stitch all the way around in the other yarn.
This baby blanket only took four nights to create on my brother KX-350 knitting machine. I used a basic acrylic yarn and crocheted a single, half double, double crochet border around it. The border was a little too bunched up so I know now for next time to skip every third row when making the border. I used 120 hooks on the machine and knitted 150 rows on tension dial number eight.
It only took me about two months of off and on working on this crib sized baby blanket. I did not use a pattern. Instead, I just used a basic basket weave stitch in basic acrylic yarn. The border is a very light blue in a half double crochet stitch. I hope it lasts for years to come 🙂
This was commissioned and I used Caron Simply Soft in two shades of blue and white and did a basic crochet shell stitch throughout. The border is one round of single crochet in blue, then double crochet in white, then a picot for the border. There are 17 shells across and then 11 rows of the blue colors which are 4 shells wide (can you tell i made up the pattern?) 🙂
