Crochet Call the Midwife Newborn Baby Blanket

Hi Everyone!

It seems like everyone I know is having a baby so this week I want to share with you the Call the Midwife Newborn Baby Blanket Pattern that was designed by Rebecca of Little Monkey’s Crochet. Before I started this blanket I had never watched the TV show, but had always heard good things about it. I was definitely missing out because once I started watching it I couldn’t stop! I completed the blanket while watching the show and noticed it in many of the episodes of the show. This pattern is easy to follow and you can make it as long or wide as you want. I followed the pattern size since I was making this for a newborn baby.

I used some DK yarn in three different colours, that I got in the UK at the Hobby Craft store which is kind of like the Michael’s craft store over there. When I first started this blanket I thought I was doing it wrong since it didn’t look like the picture, but once I completed the first set of rows it started looking better. I followed Rebecca’s instructions to crochet into the chains instead of the chain spaces since I thought the stitches looked tighter that way, but that depends on how tightly you crochet and how you want the blanket to look in the end. I really enjoyed making this blanket because once you finish the first couple sets for rows you will have the pattern memorized and you can finish it quickly.

For the border of the blanket, I just did the scalloped edge pattern that I always use from Staci’s Very Pink Knit Youtube Channel and it turned out really cute. You can also follow Rebecca’s scalloped edge border pattern, but I used Staci’s pattern because I have it pretty much memorized since I use it so much. I really like how this blanket turned out and might make another one soon in a different colour.

Here are some completed blanket pictures:

This blanket was really fun to make and Rebecca’s instructions are clear and easy to follow so completing this newborn blanket was quick. This would be perfect for when you need to make a last minute present for a new baby.

Knitted Scarf Pattern (Contrasting Colours)

Hi Everyone!

This week I want to share the pattern for the second knitted scarf I made in the UK during my vacation. This one isn’t an infinity scarf like the previous pattern, but it is worked up quickly and if you like the look of the scarf you can sew the ends together to make an infinity scarf. I used the same needles and yarn for this project because I like how quickly I can finish knitting it. Here is the pattern.

13

Materials
10.0 mm (Size 15) Needles
2 Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (I used Loops and Threads in Mushroom and Moss Green) (82 metres ((90) yards) each)
Scissors
Tapestry Needles

Abbreviations
CO – Cast On
K – Knit
P – Purl

Pattern
CO 16 Stitches.
Row 1: K1, P1. (16)
Repeat Row 1 until you are happy with the length of the scarf. For the one I made, I just knit each colour until I finished up the skein of yarn.
Cast off. Weave in ends.

This is a very simple pattern that can be completed very quickly. I like how the contrasting colours turned out and since there are many different colours to choose from, there are many combinations of colours that would look nice together.

Knitted Infinity Scarf Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Last week I shared some photos of the scarves I knitted while I was over in the UK. This week I want to share with you the pattern for the purple infinity scarf. This is a very simple pattern that you can knit up for a last minute present. I used large needles and thick yarn to accomplish this and it turned out really soft. I am usually a very slow knitter so this kind of knitting project was perfect for me. Let’s get started.

16

Materials
10.0 mm (Size 15) Circular Needles
2 Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (I used Loops and Threads Cozy Wool in Velvet)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Note: If you do not have circular needles you can just use straight needles to knit the piece and sew the ends together with a tapestry needle.

Abbreviation
CO – Cast On

Pattern
Circular Needles
CO 120 Stitches.
Round 1: Connect the loop and place stitch marker. Knit around. (120)
Round 2: Purl Around. (120)
Round 3: Knit Around. (120)
Repeat Rounds 2 and 3 until you are happy with the width of your scarf. I did about 20 rounds in total.
Cast off. Weave in ends.

19

Straight Needles
CO 120 Stitches.
Row 1: Knit across. (120)
Repeat Row 1 until you are happy with the width of your scarf. I did 20 rounds so it will be about 20 rows in total.
Cast off. Leave a long tail to sew the ends of the scarf together to make an infinity scarf.

Finished! These patterns are really simple and would make a great beginner project for using circular or straight needles that require thicker yarn and needles. Next week I will be sharing the pattern for the other scarf I made during my trip.
