Starting small with nannycheryl………….continued

love making new blankets, I work a few squares, ideas, look for inspiration everywhere.   I have many books and troll through the internet and enjoy the thoughts flowing through.

I have started to make a tradition square, I then bordered with black, not unlike my others I hear you say, but this time I have made a few rounds of lace look crochet, I am not sure how it will come out but I shall add photos as I go.

I pick as many bright colours as I can they work with the dark ones well………..

 These are my 5 row squares which are multi coloured ready for border to be added

 I start my black borders making it look lacy  

These are the last pictures I left you with

I have make a square with the pattern I want to use………  this is just a model and will not be used as variations follow as I go along.   It really is make it up as you go, I start with a plan and then let my imagination take over, its fun

   On this model I have a block colour in centre, I later changed this to one colour one row until black border started

I like the effect of the lace border look and feel it will look good when a few squares are joined……………….

I joined them all together trying to make a nice join, when finished a small amount I checked and photo’s were taken, but I was not happy….

I went and had another look and decided that the lace border should be larger and the joining should be different, I have already done a few squares and will again join and look at my progress, hopefully I shall be happier this time, I do love the lace border though, just about getting it right………….. see you next time

   I start with small rounds of colours I want to use I make many of these and put in box to use later,

 

 

 

 

I then make up larger rounds using main colours and making sure I have a even amount of rounds of specific colours which will dominate my creation

DSCF6875

This is the squares with three colours starting to look more like a blanket in the making………………….

 I decided to make these squares up of 5 rounds, I like odd numbers they seem to look better.

these ones are four rounds will show further pictures when 5 rounds are finished.

This dress is designed to nice and easy to get on and off your prem baby, not too much pulling and disturbing your delicate baby, I had a few of this design for my own prem baby although it was a smaller size she was more like a 12″ doll, this doll is about a 16″ doll.
