Ahavah Baby Blanket
"The Ahavah Baby Blanket is a beginner friendly Tunisian crochet blanket that comes in one size (fitted for a newborn and a Moses basket or a stroller), however it can be easily adjusted to various size as per instructions in the Notes section. It can be worked up easily in a few evenings when in need of that last-minute baby shower gift. It is made in cotton and acrylic Yarn and Colors yarn blend that offers great stitch definition highlighting the pattern texture and can be washed easily in a washing machine- a great asset for an item for newborns. The yarn is available in several truly unique colour combinations, so each blanket can be one of a kind piece. "
NotesThe Ahavah Baby Blanket is worked flat, RS facing from right to left.
The blanket consists of three distinct sections: Honeycomb pattern (alternation of tss and tps within and between rows), Pinstripe pattern (alternation of tss and tps within rows) and Waffle pattern (alternation of tss and tsls within and between rows). The pattern starts and ends with Honeycomb section.
OPTIONAL: To create colour changes within the pattern texture of the Waffle pattern section (as per project pattern pictures), yarn balls (or using one strand of yarn from outside and one strand of yarn from inside of the same yarn skein) are alternated on each RP.
The stitch count refers to the number of lps on hook on FP.
