My friend's baby was born whilst I was on holiday, so since being back I've been frantically trying to get the baby blanket finished. She's had a little girl, so I hope that this will be suitable - a take on cheery primary colours!
I made it using Stylecraft Special DK in:
It was all made with half-double (half-treble UK) crochet stitches. The sunshine and turquoise stripes were 14 rows each, the lipstick stripes were 7 rows each, and the white between them were 2 rows each.
I bordered it with 3 rounds of half-double (half-treble UK) crochet in white, then 2 rows of single (double US) crochet in lipstick.
Quite a simple design, but hopefully quite effective!
I'm hoping my friend likes it. I will be seeing her, and meeting the new little one, tomorrow - can't wait!
