I was very busy adding items to the March 2012 batch for my friend’s delivery to our local hospice. I contributed six lap blankets and nine preemie blankets. Other volunteers make baby hats, so I used coordinating yarn to make blankets to pair with them.
This first lap blanket is from some donated Jeanne salmon colored cotton yarn and some ecru cotton I had on hand. The pattern is Diamond Ripple by Anne Halliday in Leisure Arts #108214, Afghans for All Seasons, Book 2.
The second lap blanket is from Baby Bee Pitter Pattern yarn. I had started a baby blanket for my son, who is now nearly four, so he doesn’t need it. I finished it as a lap blanket. It is the standard feather and fan stitch.
The third lap blanket is yet another one of Lyn’s Round Ripple Blankets. It is just such a fun and easy pattern.
These are three little square preemie blankets made from donated King Tut cotton. The first two are patterns I have posted: Tiffany Lace Baby Blanket and Fan Lace Baby Blanket. The third is an original design in Tunisian crochet. I haven’t gotten brave enough to write up the pattern and post it. I have never written down a Tunisian crochet pattern.
