At first the thought of making a blanket was really daunting. I wasn’t sure how long it would take and if I’d have enough interest to finish one, but I started one anyways to see how it goes. I actually quite enjoyed it and it went by faster then I thought it would. 

This was my first big crochet project. Up until I started this one I’ve only made amigurumi’s and baby booties. I think the toughest part for me was when to turn at the end of the row. A few times I had to rip back at least a few inches because I turned too early and the blanket was getting skinnier. 

In order to use two colors I carried the yarn across using a method called Tapestry Crochet. 

 Baby Blankie

The blanket is 6 squares by 8 squares. I haven’t measured it for the actual lentgh/width but it’s big enough for baby to lay on or to use as a stroller blanket. 

Pattern: Tiramisu Baby Blanket

Yarn: Caron One Pound
