DIY Blankets

Saturday, April 4, 2015

Hey friends! Angela again!

So, a couple of years ago, I taught myself how to crochet. Between Pinterest and YouTube, it was pretty simple to learn. It took me some time to find the perfect YouTube video to get started, but once I got the hang of it, there was no stopping me!

I was a crocheting maniac!

Just recently, I made this crib-sized baby boy afghan blanket. 

The stitch I used in the blanket is called C2C (Corner to Corner). I first learned the stitch by using a Youtube video.  This guy, Mikey is a great teacher, and his videos are very easy to learn from. He moves at a great pace for beginners.

For this afghan, I used Red Heart worsted weight yarn--Baby Blue, Aran, and Frosty Green-- with an H (5.00 Boye) hook.  For the boarder I did a simple half-double crochet.

 I’m not sure yet, who the lucky boy will be who gets this blanket, and I’m thinking of making a matching hat to go with it… What do you think?
