Baby blanket “Justine”

maRRose - CCC --- Babyblanket Justine-14Right before I left for my fantastic yoga week in France (more here and here), I decided I needed a (second!) nice, quick little project to take along with me.
Finding some lovely leftover soft pink Alize Cotton Gold in my stash (with which I crocheted this “Summer Shawl”) the beautiful “Popcorn Blanket Pattern” by Haafner popped into my brain: baby blanket “Justine” was born.

To be honest, I don’t think the Cotton Gold was the most perfect yarn to crochet this design with – but some blocking did the trick and took care of initial wobbliness.

This stash busting project allowed me to make six big squares (each measuring approx 30 cm x 30 cm – 11.8 x 11.8 inches), which resulted in a reasonably sized baby blanket of 90 x 60 cm – 35.4 x 23.6 inches).

In my opinion the gorgeous pattern of the blanket did not need too much of a border, so I simply crocheted one round in crab stitch in a contrasting Cotton Gold that I was lucky to find in my stash as well.

I’ve just listed this beauty in my Etsy shop and have to admit ….. I’m a bit in love ….
