When we found out we were pregnant, I knew I was going to want to make some things for this baby. I waited to find out if it was a boy or a girl before I started anything.
My first project that I've completed is this crocheted baby blanket.
I found these gorgeous and soft yarns at our BX one day and knew these were the colors I wanted.
They are Red Heart Soft Baby Steps in Baby Blue, Baby Green and White.
I bought 2 skeins of each color, 6 skeins of yarn total and used it all.
I did a simple single crochet using all three yarns at the same time using a large size P crochet needle. The effect was really pretty and created a really bulky warm blanket for our September baby.
It came together pretty quickly when I actually had time to sit down and crochet it (usually while I was catching up on some of my favorite shows. Anybody else love Scandal!? Addicted! I have 2 more episodes left.)
It ended up being pretty large, measuring 52x42 inches but it's perfect.
I can't wait for our little boy to be snuggled up with it!
