Happy Wednesday, crafters!
In an effort to continue my crochet education, I’ve decided to try and learn a new stitch once in a while. Such a radical idea, I know!
What started off as a swatch has now become the workings of a baby blanket for some family friends, who are expecting their first baby boy this weekend. What do you think so far?
This stitch is called the V-Stitch, and it is both beautiful and easy to work. While there are a few different variations of the V-Stitch, here is a diagram of how I am working this particular stitch:
I love this stitch because it’s really easy once you get going, and it looks very pretty by itself. Pair it with a cozy yarn and you can make a quick little baby blanket!
I’ll be providing a written pattern for the V-ery Snuggly Baby Blanket in the next couple of days (get it? V-stitch? V-ery Snuggly?), but first I have to finish the blanket itself. I am about halfway through with the body of the blanket, and then I plan to find a nice and simple edging to go around the entire thing.
This baby blanket has got me wanting to make all kinds of baby items. Isn’t the texture just lovely?! I’m using Stylecraft Special DK yarn and size G hook, so the resulting blanket is soft, light, and very snuggly (hence the name)!
I hope to have this blanket finished by Thursday night, which means I could post the pattern after that. The baby is due this weekend–nothing like cutting it close, am I right?
Have a GREAT Wednesday, everyone! Keep it crafty!
