Small Mitred Blanket



Good morning lovlies.
Today's pattern is for a little blanket. Done to the instructions you should get a blanket that is 30x30cm, which is the right size for a 14-16 week bub. To make it larger just continue following the increases. This is a pretty basic pattern, and nothing new in the big wide world of crochet, it is also a simple enough one that you can take with you or make while watching tv.

  1. I love this pattern. I can't wait to make one I will then donate it to the hospital for their wee ones. I just took down about 20 little blankets. Now I am looking for a fast sweater or something along this line. Any ideas.
