Absolutely beautiful! I'm assuming that you made all those blocks, and then crocheted them together somehow. If so, I truly admire your persistence! I usually make my baby blankets all one color because I don't like to weave in ends, but have recently made two where I changed colors every 4 rows or so and just LOVE the way they turned out. That may be my new way of creating blankets for awhile...but I don't think I would EVER make individual squares that had to be put together. You did a WONDERFUL job...you must be a very patient person!!!

This is a basic entrelac pattern. I found basic instructions for it on youtube and then went from there. The whole blanket is worked in diagonal rows of blocks, not individual squares. You start with one square in the bottom left corner. Then you make a square on the right side of it that is attached to the first square at every other row. When you get to the top, you work the next square on the top of the original square. So now you have two squares. The third row will have 3 squares, etc. It goes very quickly and only has ends to weave in at the ends of the diagonal rows. I work about 5 rows at a time, then weave in the ends, then work the next 5 rows. This pattern is a lot of fun! I hate sewing blocks together too! You don't have to do that with this pattern.

Great afghan and good timing. I have been looking for a baby pattern as I have committed to making a blanket for a friend for a January shower. since their don't know if it's a boy or girl, this will be good. I'm thinking yellow, mint green and white. And, I get to try something new.

 

Thanks,

Kat
