Crochet a Blanket

My favourite thing to crochet is baby blankets.  They are smaller and I can get quicker gratification on completing a project.  And there is always someone I know having a baby.

In our Crochet-Along Crochet Crowders Facebook Group, one of the members, Julee Fort has offered a free pattern on Ravelry called, It all Started with a Square.  I started this on my lunch hour on a Friday and completed it on Sunday afternoon.  And that’s with doing a few other projects on Saturday too.  I made mine with 2 balls of Ice Magic Light so I didn’t have to change colours, but you can really have fun with colour on this crochet pattern.  Also, don’t feel like you have to stop at the baby size.  This would make a fabulous afghan for your couch or bed.  It would be really great in your favourite sports team colours for taking along to those outdoor fall games.

It’s a fun little pattern so if you are in need of a super-fast project, give this one a try.

      Dear Jeanne, Thank you so very much for sharing this pattern. My kids tell me I live on this website. If I have a pattern, I don’t understand, the first thing I say is; “Let me look at the CC site, to see if Mikey has any videos, on this. I feel like I have “known” Mikey for years. I was watching Mikey’s tutorial’s before the “Crochet Crowd” and “Mikey Magazine” existed. I have Mikey in a video from years ago (well his hands anyway). I think it was, one of the first tutorials, he has every made. I have so many projects, that I have made, using his techniques. I wish I could tell him, what a truly beautiful person he is. I would love to ask him where he finds the time and patience, for all of the hard work, this must take (and still have a life with Diva Dan!) He is definitely a celebrity in my book! Sorry, for going on and on. I did not know where to post all of this. I wish I could afford one of the cruises, I would love to meet Mikey and Diva Dan. Thank you, as well, for all of the work you and your fellow “worker bees” do to make all of these wonderful things possible for free for all of us. God bless all of you, Mikey and Diva Dan!


      • Aw, thanks for all the kind words! They mean so much to me and all of us at The Crochet Crowd. Mikey and Dan are really great guys, hopefully it will work out one day that yo can meet them. 🙂
