I made this! A crocheted blanket for a tiny human

After nearly three months work, I'm pleased to present a blanket for a good friend of ours who had a baby in January. Sorry it's so late, Audra! I hope Evelyn still finds a use for it.

The blanket is a pale yellow colour [started before we knew what gender baby was going to come out as, but 'blue for boys and pink for girls' is just crap anyway]. The yarn used was 100% cotton 4-ply and I hooked it with a 3mm hook. It measures 50" [almost] square, which I think is a good size to swaddle a baby up in.

The whole thing is worked in a simple shell stitch...

...with a simple border of double crochet.

Working on the principle of string vests, it's all holey but having spent many an evening with it draped over my knees while working on it I can confirm that it is really warm!

So there it is. Another project complete. Blanket for a tiny human, soon to be shipped off to its new home.


  1. Gorgeous! I'm so impressed!

  2. Thank you! I'm actually quite impressed with the detail of the photos. Having clicked on them for full res, the stitches look great up close!
