Crochet Baby Blanket- Easy Fan Stitch Pattern. The stitch pattern was very easy and alternated a 5 double crochet fan stitch with a double crochet "V" stitch.
I did alter the pattern where the border is concerned and changed the size. I started with more stitches in my initial chain because I was going to use a finer yarn and hook. The pattern calls for a starting chain divisible by 8 then add 5. So I started with 101 stitch chain.
8 x 12 = 96
96 + 5 = 101
I used 100% acrylic Bernat Baby Sport Yarn 350g skein in the color Baby Pink
and a size G/6 4.25mm crochet hook.
This was enough yarn for the entire blanket, the booties and the bonnet. I have a small ball left over.
The finished blanket was 70 rows. This gave me a nice size rectangle. The finished blanket is about 3ft. by 4 ft.
After the double crochet round, I did a round of 5 double crochet fan stitches. Skipping three stitches between sets. This gives the blanket a scalloped edge which is super feminine, and a place to weave the ribbon.
The ribbon is woven through every two stitches.
Wooly Wonders Crochet. I added ribbon again to cinch up the decorative treble crochet detail in the front.
Michael's Craft Store to "wrap" it. She might find a use for it to store baby items.
