    Trinity Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket

    Hi Everyone! I recently finished this crochet baby blanket using Heather, from the Unraveled Mitten’s, pattern for the trinity stitch. I wanted to try a new stitch and googled some and thought Heather’s pattern was so pretty for the teal yarn I had. For the blanket I made, I casted on 150 chains as the pattern calls for chains in multiples of 2. Once you have completed the blanket to the length you would like, change the yarn to a contrasting colour and single crochet around the whole blanket. Once that is done, change the the yarn colour again and make an scalloped border. Materials5.00 mm (H) HookWorsted (4) Weight…
