I’m ashamed to admit how overdue this baby blanket is for a very special little man but let’s just say that he’s already outgrown his moses basket! I had no idea when I embarked on the project just how long it was going to take me; the stocking was incredibly quick by comparison. It’s a 30 round granny square changing colour every two rounds until I ran out of blue wool then I did four rounds of navy before completing with double-v edging in red (term used in the blog that I found the instructions on but I don’t think it’s one that crocheters would recognise). The edging was really simple completing 2tr 2ch 2tr in each gap on the previous round with 2tr 2ch 2tr 2ch 2tr on each corner.
I’m really pleased with the end result but there’s just one problem. Jess loves it too! She wanted to wear it as a shawl all morning and came crying to me every time it fell off so I used one of Nan-nan’s old pins to fasten it in the end, which Jessica thought was brilliant! I’m sorry, Jess, you’ll be waiting a long time for me to make another one for you!
