I'm on cuteness overload!
I made this for a girl who works with my mother. I made her wedding cake and a towel cake when she got married. Well, not two months after she got married, her new husband was deployed. Then she found out she was pregnant!
Having some limited income problems, I racked my head as to what to make for her.
Thus we have my very first crocheted blanket. The body is double crochet. The fringe I winged, (never having done fringe before). I free styled it, so it came out way bigger than I expected, but will last the wee one longer that way.
On to the pictures!
You can't really tell how big it is here, I didn't have a model to hold it up. Except my three year old, then it would have drug the floor even with him holding it up over his head.
Edge detail. Basically I would single, then chain 8 slip into next, and do over.
The body took me about a month. Times I would have my hand cramped so bad. But I was trying to finish before the huge 12 days swap. I managed to finish the body, but the edge waited until after Christmas. I managed to finish that in a weekend.
So, how did I do? Does this look like something someone would want?
