Missoni Inspired Blanket

I've just completed a custom order from a lovely new mommy!  I used my Missoni Inspired pattern, pictured above.  She picked a grey color palette.  When I get farther along, I'll be able to post some decent pictures.



A few details about the pattern:

Crochet this beautiful blanket for the stroller, won't drag or get caught in the wheels! Great for the car seat! Baby stays warm and protected! Your finished blanket measures approx. 26" W x 39" L. Great size for the crib or toddler bed as well!

I would rate this as a beginner crocheter. You can whip this up in a week or so and be ready for a shower or upcoming birth! The chevron pattern is an easy one!

Unique, one of a kind, shower gift! You will love the ooooo's and ahhhh's when she opens it!

Great project to use up your stash yarn! The pattern does not give brand names of yarn, however, it does give color names!

Complete crochet instructions and photos are included.

Pick traditional, primary colors, or, for the more modern mommy, soft creams, chocolates and turquoise! Shades of all the same color would look terrific too! Five or six shades of blue or pink! Shades of grey and yellows are stunning! The sky’s the limit! 

Add tassels, fringe or pom poms to make it extra special!


Have a great week,

Sheila
