Hookin’ Around

Babies, babies… EVERYWHERE!

It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to make baby stuff!  Dare I say, I was beginning to miss it?

Adorable patterns… brightly colored yarn that, let’s be honest, if put on display in my home might give off a wee bit of a Hansel and Gretel-ish vibe.

I’m happy to announce that the lull is over, ladies and gentlemen! In preparation for the new arrivals of Miss Emily and Sir Grayson…

I had a lot of fun making these blankets.  Emily’s blanket (pink and mint) was created using the shell stitch and a treble crochet border.  The clasp was simply many rows of matching treble crochet stitches.

Grayson’s blanket was made up of the Basket Weave Stitch (this guy’s videos are great, btw) and a treble crochet border of that fluffy yarn that’s so ridiculously soft that it almost sticks to your fingers (and tempts you to hide it away all for yourself).  The little elephant was courtesy of a lovely lady’s great tutorial found here.  The clasp was rows of single crochets.  I’m kind of digging the rolled up blanket idea…
