Well, I finished the baby blanket that I’ve been working on for my cousin. The baby’s name is Scarlett (so cute!)
I chose the Merry-Go-Round pattern, because I thought it would work well with the yarn I decided on: Bernat’s Baby Blanket yarn.
This first photo is a close-up of the stitch detail:
As you can see, double crochet was used throughout.
I didn’t choose the best point to photograph. It is slightly curled, so you are unable to see the hole created by chain stitches.
Next up is a photo of the blanket’s center:
You can see that it looks kind of wrinkled. This is due to the fact that the white yarn is a lot more elastic than the pink. It was hard to maintain an even tension.
Next is a lower angle of view:
And last, but not least, the whole enchilada:
This blanket measures (unstretched) 48 inches from point to point.
It was fun to make and the pattern is really easy to memorize. I really like how it came out. Even my sweetie offered (when he saw me taking the pictures): “It’s cute. Well, as cute as a guy can think something is.”
I hope grandma and mommy agree.
