I have a friend who had an extremely rough pregnancy, especially towards the end. She had to endure all kinds of tests, multiple trips to the doctor each week to be monitored, and a delay of several weeks for delivery.
So I was very happy when she told me that her C-section was finally scheduled! I sat down and crocheted around this blanket for her baby girl, pairing it with a coordinating burp cloth:
This afternoon I popped over to the hospital to see her and her precious baby, and to give her the blanket set.
I used Ruth's new design as a springboard for my own crochet edge.
Here's my pattern:
Round 1: With crochet cotton and a size 6 hook, *sc, ch 2*, repeat from * to * around blanket edge. Join with sl st to first sc. It would be a good idea to count your ch 2 spaces and make sure there is a multiple of two. I didn't do this...oopsie!
Round 2: sc in next ch 2 space, *5 tr in next ch 2 space, sc in next ch 2 space*. Repeat from * to * around. Join with sl st in first sc.
