I have been wanting for some time to make a Bertie baby blanket in a quality yarn, and recently had the opportunity to make one on commission.
Made in Drops cotton merino cream, powder pink, lilac and lavender on a 5mm hook. I started with a chain of 92 stiches to make a 91 double crochet starting row and a 9 motif wide blanket. The final blanket measures 77 x 60cm and took 4 balls of cream, and just over 1 ball of each of the pink colours. In total it weighs 340g
It is being gifted to a very ‘pink’ new mum – and I think she will love it!
