CROCHET PATTERN REVIEW

Pattern: #Naps Crochet C2C Baby Blanket

#napsFloor

Pattern Description:  Corner 2 corner crochet graphghan

Pattern Sizing: 40 in x 40 in with shell, but mine finished at 33.5 inches x 33.5 inches

Did it look like the photo/drawing once you were done?  Yes it did even though I used different colors and smaller size crochet hook

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes this is a super simple pattern.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that the pattern came as a graph I was able to print out and actually see the blocks

Yarn Used:  Color #1: 2 skeins of Gold Never Enough by Craft Smart; Color #2: was an unfinished project I had. Never finished it because I could never find that color again by Red Heart. I was so happy there was enough to do the letters and boarders

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used a G hook instead of an I hook as suggested.  For my border I crocheted 2 rows and not the shell.  I you want the shell border, keep reading though the original blog and you will see the instructions for it.

Would you crochet it again? YES I WILL.  I think the next time I may use a H hook instead of G.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes; Coffee & Crochet Goals did an excellent job creating this pattern.

SUPPLIES I USED:

  • Color #1: 2 skeins of Gold Never Enough by Craft Smart
  • Color #2: was an unfinished project I had.
  • Size G crochet hook
  • Scissors/Snippers
  • Tapestry needle

With this project I am doing a 50% stash busting. I have a lot in unfinished projects due to discontinued colors.

Making great progress but ooowweee this color changing is a beast
I appreciate the fact the color change started early in this project.  I tried to keep the bobbins in order, but I did have a tangled mess a few times.

24 Hours into this project, I’m done.  I have this was a  quick crochet once I got passed all the color changing for the letters.  I did frog on the S but was able to catch it before I was too far past it.

Now it is time to hide the thread.  Grab your favorite beverage, movie and “enjoy” this process.  Most people hate this process but it was relaxing.  Took me about 2 hours to complete.  Be very careful in this process.  I snipped a stitch and had to repair it.  Quick fix but I did freak out at first.

My favorite snipers and yarn needle got the job done 🙂

Thread buried, now its time to add the border.
I think adding the border took longer than crocheting the actual blanket…lol, but at the end, I love the look.  Time to wash it (gentle wash) and get it ready for its new owner.
