crochet show & tell: baby blanket #4

On Saturday I went to my friend B's baby shower. She is having a little girl. This is the first baby girl in our friends and family and I was very excited to make my first girl blanket. I think I went a little overboard because it took a lot longer and ended up being a lot larger than I thought. Oops!

Anyway, it came out great and she loved it! I did squares in pink and white. On the pink ones I did letters of the baby's name and butterflies in a popcorn stitch and the white ones I did plain. I edged all the squares and put them to together in a darker pink and then did a scalloped pink edge.

Sorry, some of the pics are a little blurry. They didn't look that way on the camera.
Next I will be making a baby blanket for my Cousin K. Her baby is due in October. She isn't finding out the gender so I will have to make something neutral.

  1. Wow! You did an amazing job on that blanket. Wish I had the skills to crochet. I do know that I could crochet a single line around the world (just no connecting them).

  7. What a beautiful blanket! I'm so jealous that you can make that! I have crocheted several times, but I never stick with anything to finish it. Very bad on my part I know. Stopping by from ICLW and wanted to say that I'm excited to follow your journey and wish you all the best!
