Baby blanket “Gigi”

maRRose - CCC - Baby Blanket Gigi-02You might easily think this post is a bit too similar to this one, but I’m way too content with the newest addition to the “maRRose”-baby blanket department to not give it its own little moment of glory here on my blog ……

maRRose - CCC - Baby Blanket Gigi-03Still in love with the “Dijon” stitch and the first blanket I crocheted with it, I very much wanted to make a more girly version.
So, for this one – the “Gigi Blanket” – the off-white, light grey and charcoal that I also used in the “Dijon Blanket” were mixed with light and …… neon pink.
And just for fun, I crocheted some of the blocks in a stripe pattern.

Please don’t ask me why, but this blanket partucularly called for a much bolder border, which is why I added the big bobbles using the charcoal yarn – the inspiration coming from this Pinterest-image.

There’s only one thing holding me back from using the neon pink again: it’s nearly impossible to photograph…….. luckily it looks very pretty in real life…..

Since there are no baby girls that I can gift this blanket to, I’ve listed it in my Etsy shop, hoping it will make a darling little girl (and her mom) happy!

        • Thank you for your lovely compliment, Kathleen. I’m afraid I cannot really help you with this – we don’t use these specifications in The Netherlands. All I can say is: it’s a rather thick acrylic yarn, hooked up with a 7 mm crochet hook. Hope this helps a bit? Good luck, Marianne xx
