** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

~ working on a blankie ~


I've been working on this blankie for a little while now - I'm not really liking the colors.  Do you think they're too dark for a baby?

I bought the yarn from AC Moore - it's one of the mill-end bags.  It is 100% acrylic and was made in Turkey.  If anyone recognizes the brand, could you let me know - thanks. 

P.S.  The pattern was sent to me from Neicee - her blog is 'Insomniac with a Hook'.  Thanks Neicee.  Here's the link she sent me:

  2. Oh my...may I just say I *love* everything about this blankie!! :D I think the colors are just fine for a baby (back in the day we only had pastels for baby colors, but things are different nowadays LOL) and I love the stitch pattern and yarn you're using! :D

  5. I think its lovely. I don't find the colors too dark, but perhaps this is one of the baby blankets that Mom will like more, heh. Will you be edging it in one of the shades in the blanket? Or another color? Or at all? I'm trying to visualize it finished. :-)

  9. Thanks ladies. :)

    glor - the yarn I'm using is a mystery. I bought a one pound mill-end bag from AC Moore. I can tell you that it was made in Turkey and is 100% acrylic.

    Nilliem - I'm using the same yarn to crochet a simple sc border.

    You're welcome Neicee.

  19. Debi, I learned from my mother a long time ago, when she crocheted baby blankets for the hospital near our airbase, that baby blankets made in only 2 colors made them gender-specific. My mom made blankets using colors like; Cherry Red, Lemon Yellow, Carrot, Pumpkin, Sage, Woodsy, Mexicana, Mistletoe, Royal Blue, Christmas Green, etc. She used any color available except for the soft baby colors. I hope this helps.

    Think about this way: "A gift is a gift that comes from the heart, no matter what the color is." For babies, as they get older, they will drag their blankets around and take them wherever they go. :)
