Granny Square Baby Blanket - White and Baby Blue multi, White

| 2 Comments


(The baby blanket was given away before I realized I hadn't taken a photo. This is the yarn that was used.)

Size: (unknown - about 35 inches x 45 inches)
Colors: Newborn Print (variegated white with baby blue), White (solid) (Jamie Baby Yarn)
Pattern: 35 different granny square patterns (some modified in size or style from the pattern book)
Book: 99 Granny Squares to Crochet - Leaflet 3078 - Copyright 1998 - Leisure Arts
Hook: F
Date: February 2006

In mid-February, I got on a kick to get rid of as much baby yarn in my stash as I could. From a not-remembered source, I had 8 or 9 1.5-ounce skeins of Jamie Baby Yarn in Newborn Print. Without anything in particular in mind one evening, I made a granny square, then another, and soon I had a pile of 8 - all unique. I decided to continuing making unique granny squares from the 99 Granny Squares to Crochet book to make a baby blanket or lap blanket to be given away to some as-yet unknown place or person.

After 35 granny squares (7 x 5), I didn't have enough of the Newborn Print yarn to connect the squares and add a border, so I bought some Jamie Baby Yarn in solid White for that purpose - it worked perfectly!

The blanket was quite lovely to look at when completed! Too bad I wasn't quick enough with the camera to get a picture of it before it was given away!

I am looking for some JAMIE BABY YARN WITH THE NAME OF NEWBORN PRINT. Do you have any more? OR, do you know of a place that sells discontinued yarn? I have a half finished baby blanket that I inherited and I can't match it with a white. Just not the right color. It has a sparkle going through it. Many thanks, and the patterns are awesome.

Hi, Kathryn - The only place I know of is ebay.com. Frequent searching of ebay for: jamie newborn print in the yarn category should eventually come up with something.
