Charlotte Part 1

This week I started the center of a new baby blanket.

The center is my favorite square of late, Look at What I Made’s Charlotte Square.

My inspiration for color pattern is the squares made by Jennybugs’ (Ravelry name) Charlotte Dream blanket.

I chose red, white & blue as my color choices as the parents are big Cubs fans.

They recently revealed that they are having a boy.

I think the colors will make this feminine looking square look fine for a boy.

I purchased Deramores Studio DK yarn and it is very soft (although, a little splitty).

Full disclosure, I didn’t read the pattern at all.

I used the fabulous video tutorial by Esther at It’s all in a Nutshell.

Parts 1-18 are done and the square is on the blocking mat.

Part 2 will be all red.

I can’t wait to see how it will look when it is done!

Have a lovely week!

    Your crochet stitches look lovely. And I look forward to seeing the blanket grow. I’m fascinated by these multi-pin things I’ve been seeing lately. Are they new, or have I just not been paying attention? It appears that they would make pinning of square items go much faster. When I block, I typically pin into my mattress. Are the pin ends on these basically the same as normal pins? Really… I’m totally curious about these now. ๐Ÿ™‚ BTW, I love Esther’s tutorials. I made my Mandala Madness last year totally from her video tutorials (actually, I think I had to refer to the pattern once for clarity, but she is very good at doing this!)

      Hi! I used to use T-pins to block but then found these. They are Knitter’s Pride blocking pins and I LOVE them! Much easier to get nice straight lines. I purchased them on Amazon, but I know a lot of LYS have them. Worth the money in my eyes.
      I love Esther’s tutorials too. I used her tutorial for my Around the Bases CAL. Now I’m going to search for pictures of your Mandala Madness!
