I work in a small office and one of my colleagues recently became a proud dad for the second time.
I had not made a baby blanket for 12 years! So I decided now was the time to encompass both my new love of crochet and the opportunity to make something that would hopefully be treasured.
I used King Cole Baby which is 100% acrylic mainly due to the connivance of washing often.
The blanket measures 74cm x 54cm and consists of 8 x 6 rows of squares which I then joined together.
I am so pleased with the end result and will be making some more to sell on Folksy and eventually Etsy.

To finish and present the blanket to "Sam" I commissioned a company I share an office with to make the bespoke wrapping paper.
I hope you like the finished product and would love to hear any comments you have.
