Granite Stitch Baby Blanket


This pile of yarn ...




Hooky, hooky, hooky ....
(I see a stray yarn I forgot to clip, LOL )


Finished ... =)



Yarn - Northern Wool and Baritone (deep discount @ Webs)
Hook - Size I/5.5mm
Border - Crab Stitch (the crochet version of I-Cord)


I am SMITTEN with Granite Stitch!!!!!!  It looks Really Intricate but is So Simple to do.  =) 
This hook/yarn combo is perfect ... not to stiff and not too floppy.

Baby Levi is now wrapped in this blanket.  He is the 5th child of Mr. K's high school buddy.  It was pretty exciting when he was born ... he has FOUR big sisters.

Sharolynn,

If you click on Kirsten's Beach Stripe Surf Blanket, it will take you to the "recipe" that I followed.

Happy Hooking!
