Free Pattern Friday: Baby Blankets!

I have two co-workers I have promised baby blankets to. One is a brand new daddy with his first ever baby being born at the beginning of September. He’s been on paternity leave, and he’ll be back when I get back from vacation. I’m hoping the blanket is big enough since he hasn’t told anyone any details about the baby yet.

His blanket is made using Baby Bee Adore-A=Ball in Happy Face. I used 6 balls of yarn and a size M/N(9mm) hook.:

The paw belongs to my son’s orange and white tabby, Butterscotch.

My other co-worker is going to be a brand new granddad with his first grandchild expected in December. He doesn’t know the gender of the baby yet, so I went with white.

This baby blanket is also made with Baby Bee Adore-A-Ball but it’s called Angel:

I’m also using the M/N (9mm) hook for this one too.

I haven’t measured either one but when I do, I’ll update this post.

While I like how this “yarn” feels, I don’t really care for working with it. It’s like homespun only slicker. I won’t be using it for any future projects.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!

  1. They’re very soft and because they’re super bulky, I don’t think anyone will have to worry about little fingers getting caught. The colors are great! The white is really vibrant, and I just wish the yarn wasn’t so difficult to work with. I ended up working in front loops only in order to make sure I was actually working the next stitch in the row and not adding one in a stitch already worked – that didn’t make sense – it’s hard to explain without you seeing the way it was made.
