Pastel Ripple Blanket

Finally, finally, fi-nal-ly the baby blanket for my friend is finished!!! And although I really like the rippled pattern, I will never use this stitch again for a blanket. It takes forever to finish just a little baby blanket. 




I used a variety of pastel colors for the blanket, in combination with grey. These are the colors my friend said she wants to use for the baby room, so I hope this blanket will fit right in. 

I want to make two matching baby sheets with the blanket, a pink one and a lila one. The baby is expected to be born at the end of august, so there's plenty of time to make more stuff. 





And, let's not forget, I already made this Baby Pyramid Toy.


I also made a Lila Baby Blanket for my friend, but two blankets is a bit on the excessive, so I will give the lila blanket to a colleague. Yes, I have lots of expecting people around me :-) !

  1. From your bio, sounds like you are someone I would get along well with! :) More power to you on the blankets, I have no talent for crochet. It looks gorgeous!

  3. This is the most adorable baby blanket ever! I only know how to crochet one long chain, but I really need to learn how to do more than that, because this is just beautiful!

  4. Hi Liz,
    I love the colour combination you picked, gorgeous! I am a bit sceptical after your post because I really wanted to make a ripple blanket in the near future :)
    Would you like to link this blanket up to my new weekly link party (every Thursday to Sunday), I would love to see you there!
    Cheers,
    Barbara
