I made this blanket from one of Carons free projects http://caron.com/projects/op/op_one_skein_baby_blanket.html It was easy to do just too time consuming for me as I like to make a newborn blanket in a day and half. this one took me 3 days!! it is sc and dc. the yarn used is the new yarn out by Red heart called "with love" color blue Hawaii. Love the yarn!!! I took a close up pic also so you can see the st. It will be a warm blanket.
I finished this set for a newborn girl. the yarn is pound of love in the off white and red heart comfort yarn is the purple. love the color!! Should have bought 2 skeins but being the first time I ever tried it wasn't sure if I would like it. It came from online at the knitting warehouse
I made this set up last nite. I did shorten the length as this is a 22 inch doll, I did 17 rows total on the sweater and 9 rows on the sleeves. I say it will depend on what size hook , yarn and tension. this was made with bernat jaquards, f hook. Pattern can be found here. http://bellabambinaknits.blogspot.com/2010/01/sweater-coat.html
bought this pattern from Herschnners. the pattern was simple but very time consuming(longer than I like) I love the finished product but I try to do as many blankets as I can for my charity and this one took me 3 days where most patterns only take me a 1.5 days. it also took a whole pound of love to make. I didn't really care for the yarn that came in the kit so substituted it.
I love to crochet for babies and here is where I will share some pics of the items I make for my charity godstinyangels.com
