Yarbs and I took a crochet class a couple months ago – she didn’t love it, but I found it to be much easier than knitting, so I did kinda love it. I started on a baby blanket before I knew lil’ Cash Money is a boy, so I just used a bunch of different, bright colors with white. And I figured that I would do the edge in either blue or pink, depending on what the bebe is.
I wanted to do a scallop border, but didn’t know how. Then I stumbled across this tutorial – which was really great (how much do I *heart* the Internet?! a lot a lot!) – thanks so much! Anyway, here is the final blanket:
Not sure if you can tell or not, but the purple striped side is smaller than the yellow striped side – so the blanket is not exactly square. Oh well, hopefully lil’ Cash Money won’t mind.
Isn’t the scalloped edge cute? I really love it and it wasn’t very hard! It took me just a few hours to get on the blanket, but makes a world of difference – makes it seem finished. I really love how it came out!
I might knit a blanket and put this same scalloped edge on it – but how many blankets does one baby need? I think this blanket makes the total that I have made 5! I think I can lay off making any more blankets…
