I’ve been making something for a friend’s imminent baby. Soft, thick and colourful.
It’s a cotton-viscose, crocheted baby blanket in a rather lovely decorative stitch I’d been wanting to try out. It’s called ‘shell and cluster’.
Which lends itself rather nicely to a contrast stripe:
It was reasonably simple to make, so I thought I’d share the pattern. As before, you have the choice of UK/Australian or US crochet terminology. Click on the one you prefer.
A quick update: I delivered the blanket to the baby-mama just in time; she went into labour while I was there! (Must have liked the blanket so much she wanted to start using it straight away.) A beautiful boy arrived at 1.45 am that night. Congratulations to Misty and Mike.
