Chromium Star Blanket *free patern link added*

Recommended Posts

You can find the free pattern in the Crochetville original patterns section or

on my blog, A Whole Load of Craft.

 

The blanket uses an unusual stitch called adjacent double crochet, for

which I have put up a couple tutorials on my blog.

 

A big thanks to RoseRed, Super Granny and Riohnna who tested the pattern

for me!

I worked up this little number for a lady who works at the local grocery

store. (I live in a tiny town, so it's not that random, right?) Her little boy

just turned one, so of course I jumped. A reason to make a baby blanket,

yea!

I've had this Bernat Sweet Stripes for ages and it frankly was the softest

yarn I could muster from my stash in the largest amount. It is hard to rip

out if you make a mistake (of which I made many) and also splits a lot.

But it is a nice soft, cheap acrylic, so I can't complain.

Very cool! I love the Bernat Baby Coordinates Stripes. If I had the time, I'd test for you, but I'm going to be out of town the next two weeks on business. :sigh Let me know when the pattern goes up though, I know a few kiddo-s who'd like it.

The way the colors mixed from the striping yarn looks really interesting. And I rather like your style of the star-ghan. I'm looking forward to seeing your version of it and maybe giving it a try. Excellent work!
