baby blankets

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The only baby blankets I'd made before this year were knitted and for my babies. Earlier this year (and around the same time) I had news of a baby in my family and one in Hubby's. So I decided to crochet two baby blankets. The first had to be made quickly as we were going over to Madinah (where baby boy was born) soon after.

It's a hexagonal ripple blanket that I added a bit of ribbon to.

The second, well, let's just say I took my time with it.

This one is for a baby girl and she's a bit of a jet-setter already. So I wasn't sure where to send it! It's finally done and finished and ready to be sent over wherever she might be!
This one is made of flower squares.

I used the flat braid joining method to put them together and I loved doing that. Makes a nice change from sewing the squares (I don't do that anymore!) or crocheting them together with single crochets (which I usually do). It give the blanket more of a lacey feel.

I wasn't sure about the border and eventually went with this scalloped edging.
