A Crocheted Baby Blanket for my Great Niece

Today, I am sharing a crocheted baby blanket I made for my new great niece
who arrived last week. Luckily my niece knew she was expecting a baby girl,
so I had plenty of time to make it before she arrived.
I had seen lots of blankets made using the ‘Waffle’ stitch when looking 
online for ideas. I really liked the pattern this stitch created, so I decided to give 
it a try following the Bella Crochet tutorial on YouTube.
It crocheted up fairly quickly and is definitely a good stitch to do 
whilst watching the television.

I finished the blanket by adding a border of treble crochet stitches in white,
 and a row of double crochet in pink. I then wrapped it with a pretty 
crocheted blanket tie. 
I purchased the yarn online from Wool Box who have great prices on
their yarns and provide a very fast delivery service.

I used five 100g balls of Sirdar Hayfield Baby Bonus DK, three in
 'Baby Pink' and two in 'Baby White'

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
