Even though there are so many clever crochet patterns available it can sometimes be hard to find a single pattern that is exactly what you're looking for. If a few of them come close enough, why not combine them to form a totally unique object? That's just what Sherie did when she made her Baseball Blanket, today's Remix Friday project. Here's her story.
My name is Sherie. I learned to crochet as a girl but never really
started crocheting until I retired in 2012.
The Original Pattern
Corner-to-Corner Throw by Catherine J. Watson and Bouncy Ball Baby Blanket by Debbie Smith
I have two grandchildren and
made the baseball blanket for my grandson.
I used the Bouncy Ball pattern on Ravelry to make the squares. I
initially was going to make just the squares to fit a twin bed, but my
husband thought I should make a diamond shape. So I joined the
completed squares into a diamond and for the corners, used the corner to
corner pattern on Ravelry to simulate grass. I joined with the ladder
stitch. Since my son-in-law is a Braves fan, I decided to make the
baseball squares in blue. The result was a blanket that will fit on a
queen size bed!
Crochet is... so very addicting!
What a cool gift! Thank you so much for sharing your project with us today, Sherie.
