Hooked with Love

I was asked to make a winter blanket for my cousin’s son…something warm for traveling in the car.

I had made a Call the Midwife Blanket prior to his birth and I know it is well used and well loved.

I was happy to make a second blanket for this cutie!

Recently, across my Facebook feed came Little Monkeys Crochet Comfy Squares Textured Blanket-perfect!  (Little Monkey’s Crochet-also the designer of the Call the Midwife Blanket!)

I would have loved to make a blanket in colors similar to the designer, but I really want to use yarn from my stash this year.

I had Lion Brand Jiffy bulky yarn in the following colors:

Denim Blue (2 skeins used)

Apple Green (2 skeins used)

Fisherman (1 skein used)

Furls Odyssey Hook-5.5mm

What I love about this pattern is the neat color changes and the very neat/straight edges.

A simple pattern of SC and HDC which make beautiful textures with the look of little squares.  In between the color changes are two rows of SC which make such a neat devision of color. Each row ends with a SC and a chain 1 which makes for a very neat/straight edge.  No need to make a border for this blanket.

Although I made this blanket a carseat/stroller size, it is a blanket that I will easily be able to add on as the cutie grows older!
