It’s Almost Time for Ella and Her Baby Blanket!

Whew!  The baby shower is on Saturday, and I finished the blanket today!  Now to finish the newborn hat to match but that won’t take much time at all.

ELK Studio - Baby Blanket

What do you think?  Is it worthy of a free pattern?  It’s a simple pattern that doesn’t take much time to work up at all.  The stitching allows for great texture, so the blanket is extra thick.  I can’t wait to see her wrapped up in it!  I’ve told my daughter-in-law that I want her to drag it around with her as she gets older.  Some people would want to pack it away in a closet so it doesn’t get torn or dirty.  That’s not my way of thinking.  I made it for Ella and want her to use it.  If it gets torn or dirty, I’ll just make another one.  I mean….I do know how to crochet right?

I didn’t come up with the letters but instead they are from Moogly!  She did a great job with the instructions and if you like graphs…..well, she’s got ya covered too.  Tamara also made a video tutorial of the letter A.  She states it is tricky (she’s right) and although I’m left-handed, the video still made sense to me and really came in handy!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  Be blessed.

    A GREAT crochet project is always just abit greater when the pattern is free!!! LOL! A simple pattern with a lot of texture is a treat and to have it personalized with the baby’s name makes it irresistible!!! Please, please, please ;>}

    You have done it again! This is absolutely gorgeous! Everyone loves a free pattern. The color combination is great. It is so nice to see the combination of a dark color in a baby item. Awesome. I know it will be loved and treasured. It has to be!!!
