Just starting my first ever C2C Blanket. I came across a pattern by Designs by LisaAuch. So easy, so far anyway! I haven’t had to rip any out! We’ll see how well I do when it’s time to decrease the stitches! LOL
I decided to use Apple Mint Tweed Stripes by Lion Brand. I’m very happy with how it’s looking so far.
It’ll make a great new baby or baby shower gift for that someone special in your life! The colors are great for either a boy or a girl!
I haven’t listed it in the store yet because I don’t know how much yarn the blanket will actually take. The pattern calls for 4 x 100 gram balls of worsted yarn, but I have 3 x 85g of bulky yarn.
Here are 4 photos of my progress so far!
Isn’t it cute?! I’m really loving it!
I’ll add photos as it progresses.
Well, I’m finished!
I have to tell you though, it was a little rough going! Not the stitch or pattern, but the fact that I only had 3 skeins of this yarn. I went through the 1st skein no problem, and totally misjudged the amount on the 2nd skein! I ripped out a couple of rows, made my 2nd corner & realized there was no way I was going to have enough yarn, so I re ripped out more rows! I was able to finish with a smidgen left!
For the border, I used Vanna’s Colors by Lion Brand in Seagrass. I think it really looks great with the Apple Mint!
Of course the skein of yarn ran out about 10? Stitches before the end. Thankfully, I had another one!
Well, here are some photos of along the way…..
Except for being a little smaller than I was thinking of, I’m so happy with how this has turned out!
