I finished this ages ago, but have only just got round to posting about it.
I am very proud of this, as it’s my first ‘proper’ crochet project (I don’t count granny squares and an easy-peasy scarf). I wanted to make something for my friends’ baby and, somewhat rashly, decided on a crochet blanket. My friends didn’t know the gender of the baby when I embarked on the project, and are, let’s just say, not really ‘pastel people’. So I went for gender-neutral unpastel and an unusual shape. And I think it turned out rather well:
It’s actually quite an easy pattern, and when you’re used to knitting, crochet grows really fast. It arrived with the new family the day mother and baby arrived home from hospital, so I was pleased with the timing too!
