Forever nostalgic and trying to emulate the crochet creations of my beautiful Nana, I hunted for the pattern online a while ago and saw it for sale but thought i could figure it out by looking at the blanket Nana made for the youngest. I was wrong. later stumbling across the pattern in an old Mon Tricot Book... again I could not figure it out!
So, when my cousin hinted that I should try making one of these baby blankets a few weeks ago I thought I should give it a red hot go, She gave me THIS link that has a video tutorial and so I sat in front of the PC with my soft cotton yarn and hook and followed and copied and paused and rewound and...
I think I've finally mastered it... the Mon Tricot call it harlequin stitch,Teresa in the tute calls it the square wheel stitch and others the wool eater. I call it Nana's crochet baby blanket.
Amazing what a sense of achievement it has brought, I could not be happier that now I can create what my Nana created for my children's babies and whoever may be lucky enough to get one before then!
