More blankies! You must be tired of looking at blankies. I know not everyone comes to the blog to see every post so I’m hoping you will get some pattern ideas in seeing what I’ve made. I know that is how I get my own inspirations. I go back to my past blog posts sometimes to remember just how I made some things and what yarn and hook I used to get the size I needed.
So here’s another. Well, two actually. These are purposely small for the early miscarriage. I made them in white since you generally don’t know gender at this point. The pattern is one I found in my computer. It’s from Dayna’s Crochet and is a pattern I saved off long ago. The website is still there but I couldn’t find this particular pattern. I found a reference on Ravelry but the link was broken.
The yarn is Knit Picks Brava worsted and I used an H hook.
This is a small Beginner’s Luck. I used the Knit Picks Brava worsted for the white. I think the pink is also KPBW. The blue was a ball of leftover yarn, possibly KPBW but could also be something else.
This next one is from a book by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss called Weekend Afghans c 1987. I saw a few copies of the book on Ebay for $5. There are several books with this name but this is the one I have with the pattern Shell Stitch. The books has both knitted and crocheted afghans. If you want to find it at your library, you’re generally allowed to photocopy a page or two from a book. In my book this is on p. 137.
Looking at the blankie you probably wouldn’t recognize it since the pattern looks quite different as a full size afghan. I have made this afghan but I couldn’t find a picture of it so showing the picture in the book.
And here is my mini-afghan. Once again, the Knit Picks Brava worsted. I’ve been working through all the balls I got after cutting out knots in the big skein.
I’m going to have to do a larger one using this pattern. 🙂 It also reminds me of another afghan I’ve made which I’ll have to pull out – the Keepsake Coverup. I’ve made many of those in the past. That may be in my next group!
