Best gift to celebrate the birth of a child
is a crochet afghan blanket.
A simple square with an embossed design
and beautiful vibrant colours.
This is the perfect pram or cot blanket
for a boy or girl.
This is my second afghan motif blanket and I think I am hooked - doh!
This afghan motif was created back in May 2012, and since then it has sat quietly on the back-burner, patiently waiting to be incorporated into a crochet pattern and waiting to be released.
In January 2013, I had found the perfect yarn and selected the colours, a lovely green with contrasting burnt orange, and a cream for the main border colour.
As soon as a sample motif was crocheted, there was no stopping me.
The BLISS crochet blanket was completed by the third week in February 2013. I am so grateful for the cold winter days which give one plenty of reason to stay indoors and crochet.
Finished in plenty of time for the birth of another baby girl addition to the family, born early March 2013. Woo hoo!
The pattern includes two different border edges: 1. simple and plain (as shown in the above photo); or 2. fan style (see photo below).
Hope you all enjoy this afghan blanket as much as I enjoyed designing and making it!
