Baby blanket ta-da

The baby isn’t due for some months yet but I began my crochet efforts the day after I heard the glad news. I love having a crochet project on the go and was wondering what I could do next.Choosing the colours was fun and I went for as many bright ones as our local yarn shop had in stock.

I’ve used 11 colours and a join as you go method from Attic 24 As we don’t know the sex of the baby I thought it was important that it was bright but not gender specific colourings.

Once the baby is born I can always make another blanket in specific colours or designs. I was never a fan of pink things for my Daughter, I always chose bright colours especially oranges and blues.

Puck tookΒ  the opportunity to inspect my work whilst I was blocking it. As they’re hexagons it means you get a more unusual edge to the blanket and I’m not entirely sure I like it.

Dramatic isn’t it. Eight five hexagons of four rounds each with a colour change on each round. Four rounds of edging in different colours. I’ll leave you with one last shot of the edge.

  1. Beautiful vibrant and colourful blanket Angela – love all the hexagons and the creative edge – What a lot of ends- perhaps you crocheted over them as you went…
    Certainly is dramatic! Sure it will be well loved!

  2. Most of the ends were crocheted over so it wasn’t too bad weaving the others in. Hope my niece likes vibrant colours!

  3. Oh wow! I’ve not crocheted for a while – sort of lost any spare time I used to have and just seeing your blankie has made me want to pick up the hook again! It is gorgeous πŸ™‚
