Crochet Baby Blankets

Tomorrow I will be 16 weeks pregnant! I will post some photos of my bump soon. There’s not that much there, it really looks like I just ate a little too much, haha. I have been busy crocheting some baby blankets for her. Ok, I don’t know the gender yet – and won’t until my week 21 ultrasound – but I believe it’s going to be a girl. I am so convinced of this that one of the blankets is an ombré pink chevron stripe! I love pink. You probably couldn’t tell.

The first blanket I finished about a month ago. I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn for both blankets. This yarn is really awesome! It’s super inexpensive and holds up really well. There’s nothing worse than your blankets starting to get those annoying pills (I call them fuzzies) a couple months after use. It’s also really nice to work with and comes in A TON of color choices! The hardest part is figuring out what colors you want. I buy mine from Wool Warehouse.

The pattern is worked diagonally, from corner to corner. You can find it on Ravelry. It’s called the “Spring into Summer Blanket” by Susan Carlson. And it’s FREE! Yay!

The second blanket I’m currently working on is the “Chevron Baby Blanket” by Purl Soho. Find the pattern here. I’m having so much fun working on this one that I might make a larger version as a throw for the couch, possibly in a purple ombré. The colors kind of remind me of cotton candy. I told Munro that if we have a boy, he will just be using a pink blanket!
