This pattern was so much fun to make. And did I mention it worked up super-quick! I finished it in 3 days!
I gave the finished blanket and hat set to the couple this past Sunday. But, I got in some pics of the blanket set before it went off to its new home.
This pattern was a nice and simple pattern that has some interesting details. The details stopped it from being boring. I really enjoyed making the braids for the borders and ear flaps the most. It was such a basic aspect that made the blanket unique at the same time. As I mentioned before, this is a very quick pattern. I would have been finished sooner had it not been for the cut finger and watching my nieces/nephew over the weekend (We had a craft session with felting and made bows and bowties.).
The hat was made immediately after the blanket on Saturday night. Since this is a hat for a baby it went by really quickly as well. I usually make an adult sized hat in a night so, I knew that I could whip this baby hat up in a couple of hours. The construction of the hat was lovely. I really like the ear flaps to keep baby’s ears warm.
Oh, the colors! This is my favorite part of the set. My sisters and nieces were also very pleased with the colors. Green, blue, and gray really works and now I want a blanket or cushion in these colors.
Since this pattern can be worked up quickly even with a busy schedule it is now my go-to pattern for baby gifts. I also liked that it only requires less than one skein of yarn for each color to make the entire set.
