Baby Granny TA-DA


I finished the baby granny last evening.
It was too late to bring it outside for a photo.


I made a simple border of 3 rounds starting
with that deeper pink, then white, and a
final row of the deep pink.
I found an easy border stitch 
that consists of making 1sc, ch3, 1sc all in
one chain 1 space, then you skip the next space
 and repeat all around the blanket. 
So in other words you are working in 
every other space. It does kinda resemble
a picot edge when one does a quick glance.


 I love the colors and how it all turned out.
The white is double strand of Teddy baby fingering
yarn. It is so soft and white as snow. 
The pinks are Bernat baby yarns in a sport weight.
Anyone interested just needs to know a basic
granny square pattern. There is no real gauge.
I do crochet fairly tight and I used a Bernat 
size E (3.50mm English) hook.
I used American stitches.
There are 6 rounds of 
dc on each granny and on each motif I did 1
last round of sc. I made 36 blocks.
I joined them 6x6 using a whip stitch.
I then added 2 more rows of sc around the 
entire blanket.
Finishing up I did the final border stitch 
that I described above. 


Now the fun begins as I try and figure 
out what I want to make next.
If you are anything like me 
you just want to do it all.
I really want to continue using up my 
baby yarn stash.
So what are you doing now?
Is it something I just think I need to do too?

  4. The blanket is beautiful, the colors are perfect. I really love the edge you are right it does look like a picot stitch. I have finally finished another shrug so I have started on a crochet shawl and I am thinking about knitting a swatch for a sweater.
    Hugs to you dear Susanne,
    Meredith

  8. So soft so nice for a baby girl. I think I should do crochet with wool felt. Two crafts combine will be something lovely. May be do a pair of baby felt bootie with the crochetted upper fold down (I don't know what do you call that part). Love and hugs ~.~

  10. "is it something I need to do too?".... lol, you are funny.

    I've crocheted a few pairs of fingerless gloves, some scarves, oh and some flower brooches.

    Good job on the blanket.

  11. Hi, I have been reading back and catching up on all of your happenings! The blankets are fabulous!! Love the whiskey planter!
    I had to laugh a little at your comment on my blog. Your daughter really gave you a run for your money, didn't she! I have a very strong willed daughter like that too. But this is the first one to move away. I am so worried about him. I pray a lot!!!
    Hugs, Kris
