My sweetie’s nephew (I claim him as my nephew, too) and his girlfriend are having a baby. Her name will be Kaylynn.
I haven’t yet met her mama. But if my nephew loves her, then she is probably a sweet girl.
Naturally, I had to make a blanket for the new arrival.
Their nursery colors are pink and gray. I had purchased some gray ribbon to embellish this blanket, but I don’t think it would add anything.
I’m thinking of making her a little cardigan, booties and diaper cover set. I think I’ll make that in pink and gray.
For this pattern, I’ve used the Victorian Lattice blanket instructions from here.
I improvised a border.
It is 43-inches square. The blanket was crocheted using a 5.5mm hook with Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn! in the Pink colorway. It took 3 skeins of yarn.
This was a fun project. I learned a new skill – the flat braid join and I really like that join. It takes longer to do than my usual join-as-you-go way of doing things, but I absolutely love the effect and will definitely be using it again in the future.
I hope mama likes it.
