Other Recent Gift Projects

Here are a few other projects I have done recently that I have pictures from to share :)

I made this blanket and hat set using the Loopy Love Blanket pattern from Moogly. I used 3 different colors of Inca Eco cotton yarn by Galler Yarns that I have had for awhile. The border was mostly made up as I went. I think I did 1 row of sc’s all around in each of the colors. Then a row of dc’s with the green. Then with the yellow I did shells with corners that were regular dc’s to make the corners feel a little more decorative.

This next project is my most recent new baby gift. My friends were going with a “moon and stars” theme so I decided instead of a typical rectangle blanket I would make a star shaped play blanket and attach some stars on it, keeping the nursery room color theme in mind.

I used CARON Jumbo Ombre in the color Faded Jeans. I started with the beginning rows of the star from a pattern, but quickly just opted for regular rows of dc and increasing every other row. So I would not say I followed an actual pattern except to get me started. For the border I finished with a row of [sc, picot, sc].

Then I added some small stars and based mine from this pattern. I wanted the stars to be a bit bigger than the pattern called for, so I did another round of dc’s and thus was able to get 6 points for my stars instead of 5 since I had more stitches. Then I just secured them to the blanket with the tail which I left extra long since I knew I needed some for this purpose. I really like how it turned out :)

Here is the blanket in its new home!

Up next will be some personal projects I have completed. Thanks for reading!
