time seems to be flying at the moment. Binge watching of Vampire Diaries and binge crocheting seem to be the flavour of my days at the moment. Once all the work of the day is done and little guy is still in Kindergarten, I sit down to watch Elena, Stefan and Damon while crocheting like mad.
So no wonder my newest baby blanket took only 6 days!
My hubbys friend is expecting the second baby and after the blanket for the first baby was so well recieved, I felt the need to make a blanket for this second baby as well. A nice chevron seemed to be a good decision, since I love to make ripples but wanted something different this time. I used the Be Unique Chevron Blanket Pattern by Mamachee.
Once again I used Stylecraft yarn, this time in boyish colours: Petrol, Lime, Cloud Blue, Aster and Mocha. I have to say, I really love the newest additions to the Stylecraft Palette. Now all they need is a decent mustard yellow and a grassy green and I am one happy gal.
The border was a bit of a problem. Boy blankets shouldn't be too frilly, so most of my ideas didn't fit - until I cleaned Little Guy's room and remembered his Elmer Blanket. I skipped the slip stitch row this time and left out the mocha in order to end with a "real" baby boy colour and have to say I quite like how it came out:
I had to steam block the border after the shot because it rolled in a bit. But here it is now, 66cm x 77cm:
I'm not good at doing the random thing, so I just repeated the colour order twice and added some more rows of petrol to have the same colour at both ends.
