Baby Shells Blanket

It’s Friday, and I need a nap.

I started this blanket what seems to be forever ago, before we knew that Baby Nephew Love was even on his way. I worked it on here and there, between projects, and sometimes didn’t touch it for weeks. Originally the blanket was going to go to my nephew, but the pattern is a little too frilly for a boy (in my opinion). I decided to keep it for whenever I have a little tiny baby love of my own….so, it may not get used for a good while 🙂

The pattern comes from Craftfoxes, thanks to Pinterest. I used almost five skeins of Bernant Softee Baby yarn in mint green and an I-9 hook (which feels GIGANTIC after using tiny hooks for doilies). The pattern was easy to follow, or so I thought until a few minutes before writing this blog. I definitely misread the border instructions, and my blanket is a rectangle, not a square. Ugh! It still looks fine, except one long side is a tad bit longer than the other. Oh well, mistakes happen.

It folds up nicely.

The blanket is definitely not perfect, but it is super snuggly and soft! Manchester may have tried to steal it…

Have a wonderful weekend!
