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 took 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.
