I'm giddy over gingham.
Especially the gingham pattern in my little Gingham Blanket.
I started following the pattern for the border and added two rounds of double crochet in the rudy red and liked it but decided to "do my own thing" and added more colors (watermelon and white) and different stitches for the next five rounds.
It's a little blankie just right for a baby.
I didn't write down the pattern for the border - but it's just repeating a double crochet, one chain in each space around with three double crochets at the corner space.
Really I just "winged it" at the corners adding with I needed so it wouldn't curl up.
The last round is single crochet, chain two in each space all the way around.
I'm pleased with the results.
What do you think?
Have I inspired you to try a gingham pattern?
The little blankie measures 30 and 1/2 inches by 26 inches including the border.
It's right at home piled here with my other afghans - Rainbow Scrap Afghan and Waikiki Wild Flower Blanket.
It's a good day to stay inside and crochet.
It's a damp, overcast
lousy day and yesterday was foggy all day long.
So, do I do a little project now?
Or jump in with a larger one?
I'm trying to use up yarn in my stash.
I'm thinking of doing a white throw with tiny touches of black in it.
Believe it or not my inspiration for the white and black throw was a bathroom tile floor Sarah Richardson designed for one of her shows.
Not sure what I'm going to do next...too many cute patterns and not enough time.
Hope you are having a lovely day!
