Liana’s Baby Blanket

I was looking through my back postings for crochet projects and realized that I never posted any pictures of the baby blanket I made for our newest granddaughter, Liana Rose Gibson.
So, here you go!

The pattern is Bavarian Lullaby, from Learn to Do Bavarian Crochet (Annie’s Attic: Crochet).

It is a beautiful pattern, but the special stitch involved put a tremendous strain on my right index finger, holding all the loops on the hook. I ended up having to not crochet for about a month to heal that finger. So, while it looks lovely, I suspect I will not make many more using this pattern, at least not anything of this size.

I also made a few of baby doll blankets for Miss Munchkin this past spring, per her request.

A snowflake motif from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs: 144 circles, hexagons, triangles, squares, and other unexpected shapes.

A simple ripple design.

This is a Wiggles square pattern, which was fun to make and has a very cool 3-D effect. Can you tell Miss Munchkin’s favorite color is pink?

And a crocheted brain!

This cute brain pattern came from Cornflower Blue Studio.

Miss Munchkin was a bit disappointed with the brain, as she somehow thought it was a hat, since the original pattern website shows the brain sitting on a head. I might have to try to “attach” the brain to a hat for her, although she tells me now that she no longer likes wearing hats. Go figure!

    I can understand why you had to recover over that first one. Amazing.
    I was drawn to the second one, but couldn’t figure out why. Then it hit me. I had a teddy bear mobile that I hung on the baby crib. Each bear had one of those four colors on it. When I was done using the mobile, I took it apart and put a bear in each one of the children’s baby boxes. Crazy what is buried in the brain.
