So I have been working on a baby blanket for Scott to give a co-worker who is having a baby boy. Here is the pattern I used its FREE https://www.thestitchinmommy.com/2013/12/shell-stitch-baby-blanket-free-pattern.html however I used Lion Brand Pound of Love 2 x balls.
I increased the size of the blanket by doing 150 + 1 CH and 102 rows plus the trim. I could have done approximately 8-10 more rows to use up all the yarn (which I wish I had). It took about 20 min per row so about 34 hours plus the trim and measured 50″ x 58″……not bad for doing in front of the TV.
I hope the new parents like it.
A friend of mine became a grandmother ON MY BIRTHDAY so of course I had to make the little guy a gift. I made him this blanket, didn’t take too long to make but it was a great project to keep me busy at night while I watch TV.
I found the free pattern on Mikey’s web site called Crochet Crowd http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-happy-baby-blanket-pattern-tutorial/
It took me about 33 hours of crocheting within a week to make 63 rows but only did one row of edging, I would have preferred to do 59 rows and make 3 rows around the edging.
The ball of yarn was 1263 yards and this is all I had left…not bad.
