Handmade Monday 171 – Baby Set

Bits and Bobs Crafts

Welcome to Handmade Monday, if you’d like to see more beautiful work by crafters around the world, pop across to Handmade Harbour and join in!

I seem to have hit on a successful design for baby blankets using a dense shell stitch pattern.

 This is version 1 – with a Violet monogram as the baby is to be named Violet.

I used a lilac baby yarn, and striped it up with bands of a Robin multicoloured yarn. I did 2 rows in lilac, 2 rows multi, 2 rows lilac, 4 rows multi.

I really enjoyed making it once I’d swatched it out and worked out the ideal stitch count and border.

I plan to do another to take to fairs and also develop the pattern for sale – this will be my 1st commercial pattern so its a step forward!

Version 2  –  A Layette Set
