My brother recently welcomed his first child, the glorious and wee Margot Sweetpea Marie Wells. With a name like that, I knew I would have to up the cuteness factor for the blanket I was making her. I choose this sweet pattern, paired with our oh-so-soft Comfy cotton yarn. While of course nothing can even tiptoe close to matching Miss Sweetpea’s radiant adorableness, I am quite pleased with the blanket and think the little lady will be too.
The pattern was incredibly easy that I bet even Miss Sweetpea could crochet it herself. Just double and single crochets!
I used 9 skeins of Comfy White, and one skein each of Seafoam, Honeydew, Creme Brulee, Carrot, Zinnia, Lilac Mist. My blanket is larger than the pattern, measuring 34″ x 34″, compared to the pattern 24″ x 23″. Also, I wanted a big, chunky border, which added about 2 skeins of White to the list.
