baby sunny spread

Remember the circles I shared a few weeks ago? Well, it's finished! I finished this blanket last week.

I used the Sunny Spread pattern from Crochet Today. This one is a baby blanket, so I made it 5 by 5 squares, it's a good baby size. I used up some of my left over babette yarn to make this, I used pumpkin, aqua, grass, soft taupe, soft fern and chocolate (all Loops & Threads Impeccable Solids) I think the chocolate looks really good to border all the circles. While making this, I found that I had a lot of the chocolate yarn in my baskets! I really like that color.

To join the squares I used this invisible seam method (video). I really like the method and will probably use it again.

This was a fun blanket to make, I want to make another one someday, only bigger.

  12. It looks brilliant! I've never seen a blanket like this before... you should really make another - perhaps you should make one for your neighbour or for a raffle for the local school - give you a chance to make another!

  13. That turned out great! That is one of the patterns I have torn out and put in my make one day folder. I have a girlfriend that is pregnant maybe I should make her one of those once we find out if she is having a boy or girl. Thanks for the invisible seam link.

  18. Love that you chose to use a dark color for joining ... most people seem to use whites and creams and I think the darker color really makes the brights stand out better.

  22. Absolutely beautiful! I saw this weeks ago on Ravelry, but just now noticed that you have a blog (and I'm a new follower!). I just finished my own Sunny Spread, but I'd love to make another one with colorful centers like yours. Too, too cute! I'm excited to look through your blog and see more of your work!
