Now it is going all the way from Beirut to Colorado . The baby is due in December so I am on time 🙂

I used this pattern to make the square and joined the squares as I go like in the chart 😉

For the edging I made 1sc-1hdc-1dc-1hdc-1sc in every 1sc-3ch-1sc of the previous round all around the blanket.

The yarn is a 100% acrylic and is called: Mirage

The hook is a 3.5mm one 😉

That’s all my lovelies. Hope you loved the baby blanket as much as I do 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!

Good morning!

I am happy happy happy to show you today the happy blankie in all its glory 🙂

HAPPY-BLANKIE-1

It is finally finished and I love how it is right at home here 🙂

HAPPY-BLANKIE-2

Lots of reds, oranges and yellows to match the warm colors of my home …

HAPPY-BLANKIE-3

I love it….looooove it and can’t wait for the cold days to snuggle under it. I think that we are all here waiting for that 😉

HAPPY-BLANKIE-4

I crocheted this blanket with a 4mm crochet hook and used my faithful Nako Vizon 100% acrylic yarn. ( The Nako Vizon is very similar to the stylecraft special DK between.)

HAPPY-BLANKIE-5

The pattern of each square is very classic and can be found here.

HAPPY-BLANKIE-6

As for the joining: I joined the squares with a line of sc. I held each two squares together (back on back) and worked the sc in the back loop of the two facing stitches.

HAPPY-BLANKIE-7

For the edging, when the blanket is very colorful like this one I prefer to have a simple edging: 3sc, 1sc-3ch-1sc, 3sc, 1sc-3ch-1sc, etc etc Or if you want it is: 3sc, 1 picot, 3sc, 1 picot 😉

I love picots and I find them very beautiful on a blanket edge 🙂

HAPPY-BLANKIE-8

I am so in love with my happy blankie. It is made with 155 squares (11×14) and I think that it will be cherished for many years to come …

HAPPY-BLANKIE-9

Have to go now… A lot of wips are waiting for me…

HAPPY-BLANKIE-10

A lot of work in my place too… A lot of everyday family chores but this blog is always in my heart and you too…

HAPPY-BLANKIE-11

So, my sweeties, I hope to be back to you very soon…

HAPPY-BLANKIE-12

Until then, take good care of yourself, stay warm (under a blanket or two 😉 ) and have always sunshine in your heart…

Love and kisses
