Baby blanket

I mentioned this blanket a while ago when I was working on it and here is the finished article.  I am very pleased with the outcome, and quite proud of my biggest crochet project yet!


Its a simple crocheted blanket with scalloped edge and lovely dusky pink velvet ribbon trim.


I used Rowan All Seasons Cotton which has a lovely soft texture and seems to wash really well - important when its for a new born baby!


These pictures also give a sneaky peek of the crib.  It is a very old family crib that my niece has only recently moved out of so I will show it properly another time.
