My fist attempt at a baby blanket

My co-worker is pregnant, in her 6th month now, and it’s a girl, so i decided to make a baby blanket for her… my first attempt!
I was browsing through my grandma’s book to find a nice stitch that would work fine for a baby and while trying some “pineapple stitch” I came up with a variation that seemed quite soft and thick at the same time.

I used a 6.00 mm (J) hook and about 4 skeins of Cigno Nero Acrylic wool. I am not very happy with the acrylic, my mum got it for me and she didn’t know it was for a baby blanket. I decided to use it anyway, though in my opinion it’s a bit of waste to put so much time and effort into something that is not going to be the way ti should, but I’ve read somewhere that acrylic blankets can be more handy cause they are easily washable (vs wool being super delicate!)

I started the blanket in Feb actually, and it’s done by now. I didn’t know it was going to be a girl, so I went for a neutral cream colour.

I made 3 pink and purple roses the other day and I bought a pink ribbon… I think the blanket looks very sweet 🙂
Just the “acrylic matter” keeps bothering me a bit… ufffff.
roses!

And…….

baby blanket... finished!

Done! Do you think she will like it? 😀

  1. That is gorgeous! I’m definitely going to have to learn how to crochet…or knit…or whatever it was you were doing there! 🙂

  2. thanks a lot! I was actually very satisfied with it 🙂 Also my coworker loved it (and hopefully the small baby girl is enjoying it as well!).
