April Preemie Blanket - CAL Day 3

Good morning beautiful people, and welcome to day 3.

It's another double day today, and we start moving into the more decorative stitches, how exciting!!

Don't forget to share your progress with me, I looooove seeing what colours you guys are all using! If you use Instagram, why not try the hashtag #AprilPreemieCAL

You will need:
4.5mm hook
DK/8ply/light worsted weight yarn in minimum of 6 colours.

Yarn Note: I did not start with complete balls. All 6 of my balls were originally 100g balls with a little of each used. They are a mix of Stylecraft Special DK, King Cole Pricewise and Moda Vera Marvel 8ply for my 6 colours. You could choose 6 colours and follow my colour changes, or you could make every line a different colour (excellent way to use scraps) or you could even use some self striping yarn, or a solid colour.

Colour Changes: I change my colours by completing the last yarn over and pull through of the last stitch in the row with the new colour for the next row, so I don't have to join with slip stitches. Of course, this means you'll have to redo that one last stitch each day as you won't know what colour is next, but the finished piece will be much neater this way.

My Colours are

A - Beige
B - Blue
C - Dark Blue
D - Tan
E - Mint/Turquoise
F - Dark Grey

Day 3

With A

  1. Beautiful blanket. Where do I find instructions from previous days? My yarn is all packed for moving, but I owe my niece a baby boy blanket. I do have greens, tans, camo together for another project. I think I'll dig into that and add a couple of other colors.

    Thank you so much. Shirley
