A crochet cot blanket for Hope

A little while ago I made a blanket for a friend's new Granddaughter, with a matching Squiddly Diddly conforter.

Now my little Granddaughter, Hope, is out of her Moses basket and into a proper cot, it was time to make her a new blanket too.

Using the same pattern, one I downloaded from Ravelry, a Lucy Lyons design which you can find HERE, I got to work.

I used the gorgeous "Soft & Cuddly" yarn from W.I at Hobbycraft, it really is beautiful to work with - exactly what it says on the ball band, soft and cuddly. I got the Pink Flecks colourway, which is a rich cream dotted with pinks and purples.

Then I edged it with the bright Pink colour for a bit of Oomph.

Excuse the shadowy photos, but I forgot to take any before I gave it to my Daughter-In-Law, so had to take them at her home in-between the furniture  :)

It's the perfect size for a cot, and the best thing is I have put some yarn aside for when I need to make it bigger for her bed   :)


  1. What a lucky baby to have such a crafty grandmother!

    1. I can just see the next few years are going to be a fluffy of fancy dress making ;)

  2. I like the pattern you have used and that bold pink stripe around the edge finishes it off perfectly :)

    1. Thank you. I thought it needed something bright to lift it a bit :)

  3. really pretty blanket, lucky little Hope!


I would love to hear from you, questions, comments and salutations all welcome.
