Baby Boy Crocheted Blanket
For those of you who have been faithful followers of my blog from the beginning, nearly three years ago, this baby afghan might look familiar because I made a few of them right after retiring from work. This is a pattern that my mother taught me before I learned to read a crochet pattern. I was wondering one day how many of these I had made over the years since I learned to make it in 1975 and the total is over 200! My favorite is yellow strips joined together and bordered with white--sooo pretty! I use Bernat Baby Coordinates which is an acrylic yarn that the mommies say washes and dries like a dream! The yarn has a shimmery thread that weaves through it and gives it a little extra pizzazz:)
In the picture above you can see the pattern and the shimmer!
This little blanket will go to a special couple having their first baby and his name will be Zachary! I am trying to come up with the perfect card to go with this gift.
Have a great weekend and I will be back on Sunday night for the Sunday Night Chit Chat!
