Mrs B’s ‘baby blue’ blanket pattern

So a few people have asked where I got the pattern from for the baby blue blanket,  as you know I made it up after the lady had sent me a picture of a blanket she’d found on google images, but the picture wasn’t a close up so I had to improvise.

I haven’t managed to write up the full pattern and do pictures yet for it, but a cpuple of people kindly offered to test a little chart I drew up and they were in agreement that it was readable, so for those of you who can read charts here it is….

Multiples of 6+2 with whatever yarn and hook size you fancy!
How I get my blanket size is lay a tape measure over my lap and count 6 chain stitches at a time until I get to the desired width, and then add the 2 extra chains.
That way if it’s not quite wide enough or too wide I know to unpick 6 or just start counting again from 1 instead of loosing my count on a 240 chain. (Hope that makes sense!)

Those of you who can’t read charts and would like a proper tutorial (which will hopefully include the border I did too) bookmark this post and if I’ve still not done it leave me a comment to remind me as I do tend to forget that I’m meant to remember to do something!

I’m not sure if there is a pattern out there like this (as it is just an arrangement of treble crochets really!), there probably is if you look but this is just going to be how I made the baby blue blanket by winging it. :)

A little help from my friends?

Hi!
I’ve been thinking, seen as I’m intent on blogging more & reading your blogs more (and hopefully commenting too!) That I’d really like to do a page of blogs that I like as well as facebook pages (and maybe pinterest pages too if people would like?)

I’m hoping that to make it a bit easier to gather links together that you guys and girls might be willing to post your links in the comments box here?

I’m open to links for blogs, pinterest,  facebook pages and etsy shops.
You are more than welcome to post your craftsy/ravelry shop links in the comments box too but I won’t be putting them up on the links page (not just yet anyway)

My comments are set to need approval, but I will approve them so that your links are public and then other people can see them. And I’ll start putting together a linky page :)

I hope this works!

Oh and because I don’t like doing an entry without a picture here’s an ocean waves blanket update ♡
