Bear Blanket

This was made for my hand made bears collection.  I used the simple wash cloth pattern, decorated it a bit and added a bear head.  I look forward to making more of these with different animals and colors.  Although I don’t think that I will use fingering weight again, just DK or worsted.  The fingering weight took forever.  I used Plymouth Dream Baby Fingering Weight for this project.  It is a microfiber.

Bear Head

Chris’ Afghan

This is the third afghan that I crochet.  I am hoping that it will be my last as these take a lot of time to do.  This was also done in panels of double crochet (25 sts) by 20 rows each.  I then added on a 2 row border around each panel with the blue.  This is very warm, and very easy to wash.  It does get softer with each wash and hold up much better than the pink blanket and does not pill like the striped blanket.

Materials:

Size H hook, 4 balls of Carron One Pound yarn, 2 balls of Carron Simply soft

The blanket has 35 panels (5 x 7).

Becca’s Afghan

This was made for Becca for her new room.  I used 2 balls of Super Soft baby yarn in those HUGE balls.  It did not take as long because it was crochet in smaller panels of double crochet.  Then each panel was sewn together and a border was put all the way around the blanket.  This yarn did not get as soft as I thought it would have in the wash.  I was a bit disappointed.  I don’t think that there is any way to get acrylic to soften up.  Each panel is 25 stitches across and there are 12 total panels.

Materials:

2 balls of light worsted weight pink baby yarn Pound of Love (800 yds per ball), size G crochet hook.
