The stars are hexagons that I sewed together. That's part of why it took so long. And my dad kept teasing me because there aren't 50 stars on the blanket, but that's what the pattern said so oh well.

It's from Afghans A to Z. It's a pattern book from Leisure Arts. It's got a lot of nice afghan patterns in it.

I made this American flag blanket for my aunt and uncle (he's in the navy) and I thought I would share it with you all. It took me soo long to do, but they were happy with it so it worked out.

(Please ignore my crappy sewing job)

Thanks for looking!

that's really lovely! does the tie scrunch up the poncho very much?

It does a little bit in the very top front, but as long as I keep the tie loose it's not very noticable.

I'm glad you all like it  Cheesy

How many balls of the ribbon yarn did you use?  Plus, do you have any tips on washing and drying?

I used almost 6 balls of the Incredible yarn. Luckily I found it when it was on sale for only 2 bucks a ball. As for washing it, I haven't tried to yet but the instructions on the label for the yarn say hand wash and don't machine dry so it looks like it's gonna be a project in it self to clean it.

i used an N hook. it was pretty hard to hold after doing a project with a G hook, but it worked well with the ribbon yarn.

I found a free pattern to make a poncho with lion brand Incredible yarn, which is more like ribbon than yarn but i digress. I didn't really like how the poncho looked, so I decided to just make my own with the same yarn. I think it turned out pretty nice, although i made it a little too big so I had to put a little tie onto it to keep it from falling off my shoulders.

Thanks for looking!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby stuff!!! on: April 13, 2007 09:30:15 AM
My boyfriend's brother and sister-in-law are having a baby, so I made this baby blanket and hat for them. The baby is due in May and they already know it's going to be a boy, Sammy.

Here's the blanket (complete with my cat, binx. sorry, she's an attention whore):

and here's the hat, complete with a pompom:

The yarn is so soft I'm thinking about making an adult baby blanket for me. Thanks for looking!  Smiley

I did whipstitch it, and it took forever. i had to rethread every three or four sides of the hexagons. it was only after i finished that i though about doing them in rows and then sewing the rows together, but that would be a lot of yarn to start with.
