Crochet Baby Blankets

I started crocheting late last summer (2012), I decided I wanted to learn a new skill. My sis works at Micheal’s Craft store and mentioned that they teach classes so I decided to take a couple to get started.

It’s become one of my favourite things to do…here are a couple of baby blankets that I’ve done.

This one is for my nephew, I made it for his Christening in January 2013, it took me a couple of weeks to do (on and off), in all I’d sat about 8-10 hours

This is a circle or Pinwheel (or burrito) blanket, when I first saw these I thought they were really weird. I tried it and loved it, I’m on my second one now, I’ll post it when I’m done.

Crochet Baby Blanket

A friend of mine recently had a little boy and I made this blanket for him. I used about 4 balls of the Bernat “Baby Blanket” yarn, the Crochet hook I used for this was #9. It took about 6 hours total.

I used a basic double crochet stitch for the entire blanket and finished off with a single crochet edging.
