Probably one of my first squares and just about the only thing I posted while working on it. Keeping this project a secret for two months while I worked on it was just about as hard as doing the actual work!
All the colors I used for the squares. The yarn I used was Lion Brand Baby Soft, which I have to say is a great yarn. Each skein has 459 yards and is only about $5.50, which is an insane value. The only issue I came across was that sometimes the yarn was of inconsistent thickness which made some blocks inherently bigger, but I got over that quickly enough.
The squares are starting to add up! I had to make 48 in all for the blanket. Let's just say I could probably still crochet that square by heart :)
After I finished all the squares I had to piece them all together. I ended up mattress stitching them together so that there wasn't much of a seam between the pieces and the blanket would be very strong when completed.
One row all sewn together. I grossly underestimated how long this part would take, I will not do the same in the future.
Everything all sewn together, woohoo!
Blocking on our bed... I so didn't even have enough materials to do this. Must acquire more before next blanket project!
Just opened by mommy to be!
They were even nice enough to pose with the blanket for me. I have such nice and patient family members don't I?
