We have been so excited to be asked by Michaels to celebrate National Crochet month by making a project with beautiful yarn from Michaels.com!
I used a new version of Bernat Baby Velvet called Baby Crushed Velvet. I love the tie-dye look of this yarn! I used Hannah’s Modern Hearts baby blanket pattern to celebrate my love of crochet.
"This soft and sweet textured velvet crochet blanket feels like it should be used in an expensive hotel SPA. Use modern crochet stitches paired with Bernat Baby Velvet yarn to crochet this luxurious throw. Soft and Squishy Afghan The combination of front post double crochet and back post double crochet paired with this silky yarn create a soft and squishy Afghan. When my daughter ran her hands across this blanket, she snuggled her face against the yarn. She said the fluffy and soft blanket was the plushest feeling one yet. We think it is because of the added texture created by the crochet stitches and the fluffy yarn. Pair this bulky yarn with the right stitch and you have a winner. The pattern is a two-row repeat consisting of a row of single crochet, which ads a bit of stability to the entire project. The next row uses a special stitch pattern alternating the front post double crochet and back post double crochet stitches."
"This velvet yarn crochet blanket is soft and squishy. The plush blanket is so comfortable to cover up with. I feel like I am in an expensive hotel spa staying cozy under a fancy and expensive afghan. See How Easy Making a Velvet Crochet Afghan can be Making a luxurious velvet yarn afghan can be done successfully. Once I had a chance to work with this yarn, I was gliding along effortlessly. The result is a plush and warm blanket to snuggle up with. This crochet pattern uses a row of single crochet alternatively with a row of back loop double crochet. The single crochet row provides a bit of stability for the double crochet row and together, they create a lovely textured blanket. To keep this diy project easy, I did not add a crochet border to this afghan. Further, using just one color means less yarn ends to weave in."
Hello, Hannah here, I had a lot of leftover colors from my colorful velvet twist headbands, so I decided to make a fun colorful baby blanket! When I first posted a work in progress shot of this blanket on Instagram someone said it reminded them of a chandelier and we couldn't think of a better name for it, so that's what we're calling it!
I am really happy how the Frozen Hearts Baby Blanket turned out! At first, I wasn’t sure if I can create tiny little hearts using the pointy crocodile stitch, especially because I used shades of blue instead of red, but I think the final result is beautiful. I hope you think the same too! You can use red to make the little hearts, I chose blue because I think it looks cool as a winter baby blanket. I also think this blanket will look gorgeous in shades of yellow.
