Patched Baby Blanket

My nephew's patched baby blanket is all finished! This has been a great stash buster using colours I don't normally tend to use, and were left overs of the Lucy Pack that I bought at the end of 2011, yes I have had this yarn that long!
It has taken me two months to complete, although I had plenty of time as my nephew is due to be born in September. The only thing I need to do now is block it and get it wrapped up, ready to give to my brother on Sunday when I visit my family. 

I have crocheted 42 squares and joined them together with white in the joining as I go method, simply because I can't stand sewing things together! The border is just a simple treble crochet finish in white with a blue overlay crochet chain. There was a debate on whether to add a white or blue picot edging to the border but I decided to go without the edging and keep it simple. I can't wait for Sunday so I can give it away, I hope they like it and that it will be very good for my nephew.

Tonight I am just enjoying some crochet, wine and tennis as I have just finished two weeks of night shift. It will be good to relax with my feet up while watching Wimbledon!

Hope you all have a good weekend!

  2. Your blanket is beautiful. The colours work really well together and I think the overlay was just right to finish it off.
    Your family are going to love it.
