~ baby blankie # 1b ~

Finished this baby blankie just a few minutes ago.  I got the inspiration from the Crochet World Afghans! magazine that Neicee sent me.  The pattern is called 'Baby Popcorns & Squares'.  I had some hexagons on hand already made so I thought that I could use those instead of the squares and then work the rest of the pattern.  Only problem was my stitch counts were off - I couldn't use the popcorns.  And then I thought (I shouldn't think too much) that I could add more hexagons to the bottom, but I don't like it.  In my head it looked better.  I hate when that happens.  Oh well.  I'm sure there's a little baby out there somewhere that might like it.  :)

  1. this one is again unique! I especially like the middle part, will you use the basic idea again? I can imagine lots of variations to this pattern, can't wait to see more! By the way: It's nice to see you've started the second season of your baby blankets, it's such a valuable work you're doing! :)

  2. Thanks Barbara. I'm not too sure if I'll do this pattern again. If I do, I definately won't add the bottom hexagons. :)

  7. You know, when I first looked at it, I thought it was different and unique, but the more I look at it, I can see turning it the other way around and laying the baby's head at what you're calling the bottom. I think it would be great! I really love it!

  16. I think that's pretty cool Debi! Definitely different, and you used up pieces you already had. I do the same thing about seeing things in my head and they don't turn out the way I visioned. At least we tried right? :o)

  23. I like the wavepart of this blanket a lot, but also all the colours together.
    I can see and read now you are also busy in crocheting for gifts to babies you even don't know. Like I have seen on other blogs too. Very great work, Debi!
