Pretty In Pink

Finally I can say I finished my niece's blanket and since I had a lot more yarn left I decided to make her a hat and a neckwarmer. I keep coming across so many blogs doing neckwarmers so I went ahead and gave it a try plus I am all good for a quick project. Also I crocheted a button on the neckwarmer first time doing a button and neckwarmer they both came so easy to me.:)

First want to show off the blanket that I so love and have to say I am so proud of myself it came out just like I wanted it to didn't take long to whip this up at all.

So here goes the "Pretty In Pink Blanket"

Back, look at how the back looks so clean no yarn has been cut all the yarn has been crocheted into the blanket. I wanted to keep a clean back part and not have yarn strings everywhere then have to figure out how to weave in the ends later.

Yarn: Red Heart, Pretty In Pink and White
Stitches: SC, DC for the V stitches that is on the edge of the blanket to make the ruffles and puff stitches
Hook: H hook for the middle of the blanket I hook for the bottom top and around the blanket

Ok like I said, before had some extra yarn and wanted to whip up a hat and a neckwarmer for my niece now she has a pretty in pink blanket, hat and neckwarmer.

Aw! That is so cute! I hate changing all those colors. You were smart to carry the yarn. The less ends the better! What a beautiful, personalized gift. It is so special to receive such a personalized present. Great job!
