crochet show & tell: baby blanket #5

In all the craziness of the past few months I forgot to post about the blanket I made for my cousin K. I wrote about being at her baby shower and how I followed the cool pattern of being pregnant at a shower.

Without further ado, here is the blanket.

K didn't find out the sex of her baby so this was the first "neutral" blanket I have made. Thank goodness she had a plan for the baby's room. She went with primary colors. They painted the walls yellow, red curtains with white polka dots and touches of blue in the rocking chair and bedding.

I first chose red, yellow and blue with the white, but then I felt it needed something else so I added green. I did a classic crochet ripple then added a thin raised strip of color in between every 3 rows to create the thin ripples. I did a thin edging with white. Truthfully, while I was making it I wasn't really excited about the colors, but when I finally added the thin ripples it came together. K and her Hubby loved it so that is all that matters.

K had a beautiful little girl. I will be calling her Little S on the blog. This is the first girl. Great grandchildren 1-6 have all been boys! K finally broke the streak with #7. Everyone was so excited. Especially our Momma and Poppa. They have been not so patiently waiting for a girl.

Now that everyone's itch has finally been scratched with Little S, everyone's need for girls has gone through the roof! Everyone in my family is convinced that I will be having 2 girls to bring up the numbers LOL!

So, now I have to get down to it and figure out the next 2 blankets I will be making for my own babies and then one for my cousin D who is due a month after me.


  1. Love it! It turned out beautifully!

  2. I am a somewhat new crocheter and so jealous of you blanket. It is absolutely beautiful. I am in process of learning to do the zigzag pattern. Love it!

  3. So pretty. I love the primary colours theme.

  4. I love it! You have such talent, lady :)

  5. Pretty blanket. I have yarn stashed aside that I bought during my second IVF for a baby one day. My husband picked out a nice pale denim blue and white so that if its a boy he won't be having pink on that blanket. Ugh men.

  6. What a beautiful blanket and I envy your crocheting skills!

  7. Emily, you have a serious talent! The blankets are beyond beautiful and I know that a lot of love goes in to them.

    Kudos, my friend.

  8. How exciting that you are finally able to make that blanket too keep! And you get to make two! I can not wait to see your blankets! It is soo dang exciting! I am so happy for you

  9. Good job on making that baby blanket. It is truly colourful, making it attractive on the baby's eyes too. :)


It is always exciting finding new comments! I really love knowing you were here!
