My sister’s good friend is having a baby soon. She has really been a great support to my sister through all of our family’s losses this year, and I wanted to make her a little something for her peanut.
The blanket is just a series of alternating double crochet and single crochet with a border of single crochet in the back loops only.
This is a very simple stitch pattern that makes for a beautifully textured blanket. The yarn that I used for this was a Caron Cake in Boston Creme. The Caron Cakes are self striping, and for this type of blanket, I’m not sure how I feel about the long lengths of color. I like chunking, just not how it abruptly changes.
The hat was a free pattern I found on ravelry. I added a puff ball at the top to add a little cuteness…..and because I bought these puff ball makers a long time ago, and never got around to using them. Now I need to make ALL THE PUFF HATS.
These items are off to my sister this weekend, so she can deliver them to the expectant momma!
