I started a couple of baby gifts for a friend at church back in August. Her baby was born in November and I am now finished with the gift. Both projects I got from books at the library. The first is a baby blanket called “Cot Blanket” from the book Natural Knits for Babies and Moms by Louisa Harding
Here are close ups of the blocks.
I thought this would be a easy project for me because the squares were just like doing dishcloths. I got bored with it a bit and it got pushed to the side several times. I was not really excited about sewing all the blocks together. I think next time – if there is a next time – I might try stitching this blanket as one big project and the blocks done in intarsia.
Put them all together with a nice border and this is what you get!
I like the front of the end result!
I had to make a matching hat for this cute blanket, so I made a Rainbow Marley Hat from the book Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan Anderson.
She’s got some cute hats in this book!
Here’s the Rainbow Marley -
I’m excited to finally give these away tomorrow!
