I just finished this blanket for my stand-by box ready for the next baby whenever.

I made it up of 15 6.5 inch squares with a crochet border to complete it. The patch work blocks are made up of the A,B, and C plus three blocks of each pattern. I used 4mm needles and hook plus 5 x 50g of cotton DK yarn.

The two colour square was actually supposed to be one colour but the new ball was the same colour but a different dye lot, so there is one full square in each colour in the blanket plus the two colour one in that stitch.

You are so smart to knit in advance....and it is gorgeous!!!
It is lovely!But I must tell you that I have knitted babies shawls and given them to my daughter to store! I am 83years and have twin granddaughters who are both married and aged 26years- no babies yet.So if I pass on before they do start a family,I will have these rugs/shawls for them.However if they do not have offspring these are to be donated to where they are needed.

My SIL had 6 children, each of whom married and had between 2 and 6 children, who in turn have either married or have partners and have children. We lost count of the number of great grands, mostly girls, and remembering names is quite a problem too. We did a family tree for my SIL's 80th Birthday but I don't think it has been up-dated as that was 10 years ago!! Doesn't time fly.
