Crochet Baby Blanket Pretty In Pink

Excited to share more baby blanket news.Baby Blanket Pink 2

Using the pinks from my recently acquired stash of yarn I set to work.
Pink Baby Blanket Yarn

These scrumptious squares make me think of sweet little fondant iced buns.
Pile of Squares It was easier this time as I was simply following the pattern I devised for the blue baby blanket so I just set straight to it and made a stack of squares for the outer edge. Centre SquaresFlower squares for the centre bordered with a simple treble 1 chain 1 border.
Granny Squares The simple border in turn surrounded by the old favourite.

Yes, of course I mean granny squares.Outer SquaresFollowing the granny style pattern I added a few more rounds in the pale pink, 5 to be precise, before attaching the little fondant fancy squares to form the outer border.Baby Blanket Pink And last but not least a couple of rounds of single crochet to finish off. There you have it, a matching pink baby blanket partner for the minty blue one made earlier.

Cherry BlossomForgive this random addition but I keep seeing so many wonderful photos from people’s gardens I thought I would share my cherry blossom with you too.

Every spring it gives a spectacular show of blossoms and is one of my favourites in our garden. Sadly these wonderful, but fragile, blooms only last 2 to 3 weeks, and if we get a spell of wet and blustery weather even that can be cut short! It was a bit late this year (a bit like my sharing this image with you) and has shed it’s pale pink petals for this year, so we will just have to enjoy the rest of the garden till it’s time comes again.

Happy hooking!!

I love to explore woolly projects, I knit and crochet and I’m developing a growing interest in gardening and photography, as well as an intrigue into how these projects may intertwine and overlap.
