Afghans/Blankets, Handmade Gifts

Baby Blanket 

I made this cute textured blanket for my cousin’s 9th child. I really wanted a practical baby gift that would see a lot of use. I made it a little larger than the pattern called for so hopefully the little guy will get some use out of it for the next few years. It’s funny that I didn’t notice the difference in the yarn until after I took this photo.

  1. What size hook did you wind up using with the yarn doubled? I saw the pattern called for an I hook with only one skein of yarn. As far as the difference in the color of yarn, I bet it’s only seen in photographs and not visible to the naked eye, which is probably why you didn’t notice. It almost looks like a little pillow on the top of the blanket. It’s super cute!
