A Special Blanket

Here’s a cotton blanket I finished for a friend of mine in Singapore, hence the cotton. Her husband is my man’s good friend from University, they were a little group and called themselves ‘The Hornets’. Funnily enough we’re now the first ones to have a baby and now my friend in Singapore with her husband are also expecting a little one, a little girl.

I followed the colour choices that our friends are decorating the nursery with and I actually think it worked out really well. I also added something new to the blanket with the crochet border, which I think makes it extra special.

I also decided to use different stitches for each colour, with some purl, some knit and some moss stitch. The reason I used cotton is because it’s rather warm and humid in Singapore and I wanted to make sure that our friends are still able to use the blanket. Especially as blankets are such a keepsake item, you often hear about babies loving their blankets so much that they take them everywhere, I do hope that this might be that blanket for our friends little one!
