Crochet Pattern: Candy Colors Baby BlanketBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 4 Comments
|After I had been crocheting for a little while I wanted to move on to something more advanced, so I decided to make a baby blanket for my cousin’s first baby. I chose Bernat’s Baby Coordinates and found an adorable pattern with double crochet shells. It took me about six months but when I was finished I was thoroughly satisfied with my work. Since then I have made many baby blankets and found that they are my favorite project to come back to. Now I let my creativity roam free and come up with whatever design I feel like at the moment.|
There are so many colors and styles to choose from in baby yarns, and they are often so soft and pretty. When shopping for baby yarns it’s a good idea to choose a yarn that is machine washable and dryable. Babies don’t discriminate on what they mess up, and any mother receiving it will be extremely happy for your foresight.
For this blanket I wanted something that would really show off Bernat Baby Coordinates in Tiny Tulips: a lovely blend of lime green, raspberry, purple, and sherbet orange. I saw a design using the granny stitch and a similar striping pattern but it just wasn’t what I was looking for. So I noted my favorite elements and created this one. I hope you like it as much as I do! Have fun crocheting!
Tip: If you’ve ever made a blanket you’ll notice that the part that you made first starts to get a little hairy. To prevent this here is a helpful tip I learned a long time ago. Keep the blanket in a pillowcase and only pull out the top that you are working on. That way the yarn at the bottom won’t constantly be rubbing against your lap and getting fuzzy.
