Little Erica’s Blanket

One of our Knit in Notts crew recently had a baby, and we decided to get together to make a blanket.

EricasBlanket3As per usual with baby gifts – we didn’t have it finished in time for the birth! But Erica is pretty tiny still and we made the blanket large enough for a cot or to put on the end of a single bed, so hopefully it will last her a while.

We knew that it was going to be a girl so we opted for dusky pinks, a brighter pink and grey. Teal is sort of our group colour, so Steph crocheted a teal/duck-egg coloured border to bring it all together.

Nine of us knitted/crocheted strips one metre long and approx 10cm wide. The original plan of everyone using dk went a bit astray – but it all came together!

I really enjoyed this project – it was nice to do something as a group. We put a tag on each strip to say who it was knitted/crocheted by and there were almost tears when we handed it over (I think happy ones!).

I hope Erica enjoys her cosy blanket x

From January 2016, I will be running baby shower knitting parties based on my new book The Knitted Nursery Collection. For more information and prices – please get in touch!
