Minty baby blanket

A friend of mine is expecting her first baby but hasn't found out if she is having a boy or girl yet, so I decided to make her a baby blanket in a lovely mint green (which it seems is quite a tricky colour to photgraph!). 
I used my favourite crochet stitch, corner-to-corner (C2C) to do the blanket and I really like how it turned out.
I used a tutorial by Em's Fiber Arts to do a little border around the blanket which is just the right size for using in a car seat or pram.
This project was on my Q3 FAL list for this year so linking up with the 2018 FAL team.

  1. This is lovely! Minty green is such a sweet colour. I only recently began following your blog when I learned to crochet this summer and was looking for inspiration. At the moment I can only do one stitch, granny stitch, but I'm hoping to learn more. I made a small blanket and really enjoyed learning to crochet. I put the story of making my first crochet on my blog. I look forward to more of your posts :)

  2. It is so lovely! When my daughter was in daycare they each needed a small blanket for naptime and she had a similar one which was a light weight and she found the bubbly texture very comforting.
