We are awaiting a new little addition that will arrive this summer for one of Michael’s brothers (and his wife, obviously) and I simply adore making baby things, so I volunteered to make a blanket for the wee princess. I saw this pattern and color scheme used in a handmade purse and have been biding my time until I could finally use the combination for a project.
Pattern: African Flower Hexagon, by Lounette Fourie & Anita Rossouw (Sarie Magazine July 2009)
The edging is #250 “Coming Up Shells” out of 280 Crochet Shell Patterns by Darla Sims. I figured out the half motifs through trial and error.
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver Solids in 0724 Baby Pink, 0774 Lt. Raspberry, 0378 Claret & 0505 Aruba Sea; Caron Simply Soft in 0003 Pistachio.
Hook: G (4.0 mm) on the Caron Simply Soft & H (5.0 mm) on the RHSS.
Thank you Junebug, for “taking pictures with the blanket.”
(She was overjoyed to help model this finished project, as Bluebird is my usual go-to for photos. I think Junebug has earned herself a permanent place in my arsenal of models.)
