December 24: Gingham Blanket - COMPLETED

Pattern # 358:  Gingham Blanket

You are probably very confused right now.  I bet you are wondering why there is a baby blanket pattern posted on Christmas Eve.  Well, I just really wanted to make this for a friend's kid, so I put it on the calendar for today (because it was empty) and I'm anal and don't want to switch things up! hahaha  But I guess you could make this in reds and greens and call it Christmassy!  I am probably stressing about Christmas Eve dinner right now, which is why I pre-posted this on Tuesday.  muahahaha the powers of blogger.  Wow.  I think I need more sleep.  Anywho, it's my first year hosting and I am very excited.  I have been trying to do a lot of prep work before, but we will see how well I did!

Do yourself a favor and check out the Rav link for this project.  The versions that people made are amazing!!


Updated 2/14/2011 - I finished this up over the weekend.  I started it in December and worked on it slowly (with lots of other projects in between).  Very happy with the finished product.  I actually decreased the size by 2 rows & 2 columns, effectively cutting the amount of squares needed in half.  Then I used a larger hook.  Brilliant, I know.  :)  Very happy with the final product.  I do want better pictures though.  And maybe some with precious baby Alina on it.  I LOVE the edging!


  1. Hmmm, it's still appropriate. Take a good look at the motifs. The openwork resembles snowflakes.

    Merry Christmas, Meg!

  2. Hum . . . I thought youposted a blue baby blanket for Baby Jesus's birth.

    Oh, well . . .Merry Christmas Eve.

  3. Laurie - Very true!

    Paula - How appropriate that would have been! Goodness you are so much smarter than I!!
