On my hooks: Ripple Baby Blanket


I have been crocheting this blanket for quite a while now, working on it whenever I spare an hour or two, and it is a present for a newborn baby boy. The Ripple Pattern {or the Chevron pattern if you want to sound 'fancy'} is easy in spite of its complicated looks and for this one I decided to use a palette of blues and greys. On a whim I decided to make the center part light blue, although my first idea was to make it in all 4 colors. I think it'll be less chaotic for a little baby and the colorful part makes for a great border. I still don't know what I am going to do with the edging, but I guess I'll figure it out when the time comes.

My goodness, that is so lovely. I really like the grey with the blue. Not something I would have thought worked together for baby. But I have to say it's fantastic.

It's beautiful Maya, my kind of baby blanket .. those colours are so restful and make a lovely change to the usual sky blues and reds.
I'm sure it'll be much appreciated.
