This is the third baby blanket I have made. And also my third design. Previously I made Teddy bear baby blanket, and Primavera flower baby blanket. This one I called Little flowers baby blanket.
For this blanket I used 100% cotton yarn "Tango" and "Golf" (125m/50g) manufactured by St. George from Serbia. I used "Golf" yarn for the flowers, and "Tango" for the background and for plain squares. I joined the squares with "Una" yarn, also from St. George. This yarn isn't 100% cotton, it's 50% acrylic, 45% cotton and 5% metalized polyester.
The blanket measures 77 x 95 cm and has 80 squares (8 x 10). I joined the squares with simple crochet, as I always do.
I love how that blue-purple yarn shimmers. Unfortunately it isn't so visible in the pictures, so you can't get the real impression of the blanket.
The border is also my design. I wanted something lacy and luxuriously and romantic, but not too much...
I will probably make a pattern and tutorial for this blanket, and hope it will be the first pattern for sale in my Etsy shop, which I'm planning to open as soon as I manage to cope with the various difficulties that I faced along the way...
Have a lovely week! :)
