Hello and happy Tuesday!
Something pretty and sweet, this sultry summer July day…
The kidlets are in the pool, splashing and shrieking up a storm.
There is a lovely breeze.
Today’s pretty is a soft, colorful baby blanket for a special someone!
I have been longing to try this pattern:
I’m using Caron Simply Soft in Blue Mint, Strawberry and Lime with a 3.5mm hook.
The edging is my own design and NOT quite finished yet. 🙂 I am a bit obsessed with pineapple patterns these days, and based it on that. I have been downloading quite a few doily charts!
The free pattern for the square includes both the written pattern and a chart (Oh, I love using charts, they are much faster for me).
Such vibrant colors, and the feel is out-of-this-world soft.
I may have to make this one again. I love the look of the square.
For joining, I used the braided join technique– or at least my own twisted version of it! 😀
I learned this join while participating in The Crochet Crowd’s Crochet-Along earlier this year:
I see that Moogly has also featured this square recently, on Hookin’ on Hump Day, and another nifty way to join these pretty squares…you can check that out here:
Well, it is time for snack, here at home. They are happy to play nicely as long as I feed them. 🙂
May many happy hours of crochet be in your future. ❤
