|Stitch I used for the blanket from The Complete Photo Guide To Crochet.|
I also threw together a toque (hat) last night for Megan. The toque was done is rows, not rounds with double crochet in pink and double crochet-cross stitch for the 2 rows of beige. I used a 6mm hook but would use a smaller one next time to have a tighter crochet for colder weather, with the 6mm hook this hat will be a tad too drafty for those frigid cold days. Also, Megan was in bed when I decided to make the toque and I guessed at the size of her head... turns out I was a size off and the toque is a bit big. I think it is super cute though and love the way it turned out. The yarn is Bernat Handicrafter and is 100% cotton, ultrasoft. I may give the toque to my niece or keep it for when Megan next year... I have yet to decide.
