Bright Baby Blankets

Two beautiful Baby Blankets I've made last month...
Circle in a Square Baby Blanket

A 4 mm hook

100% Acrylic yarn. Mostly Stylecraft Special DK, Patons FAB

I love this border! It's so pretty, isn't it? The pattern of it I took from this cardigan, I've made a while ago.

The next one is the Granny Square Baby Blanket ↓

Cream color for the joining and the border #73 from Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Eddie Eckman book.

Oh how I was addicted with making these colourful squares and circles...
 I'll show you a little of it's progress. Below is the first citron and orange circles for the first blanket ↓

The moment when the white yarn for the joining was used up... ↓

Colourful collage of all the circles and the first row ↓

08/06/2013:: Edited to add the link to my next short post about  the joining method I've used.

Sunny day... work in progress outside... It's me... ↓

...and a half of the finished blanket. The circles are just three rounds of double crochet stitches, but the second and third rounds are crocheted in the wrong side.
09/06/2013:: Edited to add a link to my pattern for the Circle in a Square. It's also can be find on Ravelry.

Here is the squares for the second blanket. A traditional granny square, but I've turned my square after each round made. ↓

Joined with cream color... m-m-m... Again the same situation... the yarn was used up when the last row of squares was left to join them  ↓

So... now I'm working on the same blanket but adult size. Stay tuned... I'll show you it's progress very soon...

Have a sunny day!
