|He's waving hello!|
The pattern was easy to follow, once I finally read it all the way through... the only change I will make next time is a larger hook for the blanket to make it work up a bit faster. The pattern makes a nice dense little blanket, but it took almost an entire skein of Big Twist baby yarn! I was worried I'd run out before the end, so I ran out and got a second skein, but I didn't end up using it. I also decided to make my own 'buttons' for the blanket, so I used the blue and did ch2 then 3sc into the 2nd chain from the hook, joined it and sewed it onto the straps.
I would have used safety eyes, mainly because I don't like my hand embroidery (it's never straight!), but since this is for a new baby, I don't want to risk choking! Instead he gets a handmade item, imperfections and all. ;)
