I’ve really got hooked (no pun intended, honest) on crochet. It’s so much easier to transport about than knitting. In particular I love making granny squares. It’s mad really as I make them and then don’t know what I’m going to make with them. So I’ve found making the baby blankets quite a useful way of combining my love of granny squares and also then having something to make with them.
Over recent weeks I’ve been making two blankets, one for an order and another just for fun.
I’ve also trialled a frilly edge to the combined squares.
I’m experimenting with treble crochet, to make the frill. I quite like the effect using 6 treble crochet in each space. I’ve also used a seven stitch ‘frill’ with 1 double crochet, 1 half-treble, 3 treble, 1 half-treble and 1 double crochet. I can’t make up my mind which I like best.
My next blanket is sat in a pile of blue and white squares at the moment, so I need to get sewing them together and then working on a edge. I might try the other frill edge this time.
