FO Friday: Dream Catcher Baby Blanket

Yes, it is finally done! The Dream Catcher Baby Blanket was finished 2 weeks ago but since I was out of town I didn’t get it posted last week.

Dream Catcher Baby Blanket

I am so glad this project is done! The finished piece is quite lovely.  I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in their worsted weight solids. For the edging I did a 6 stitch applied icord. The blanket ended up being more rounded than square which is why the corners are kind of funny looking. If I was smart I would have squared off the icord as I was going instead of just making it rounded. I still think the finished blanket is great. I don’t believe the baby will care all that much 🙂

The colors of Hobby Lobby’s yarn I used: Yellow, Limelight, Grape, Peacock and Hot Rose.  Once finished I still had about 1/4 of a ball of each color left. I calculated that each square took approximately 45 yards of yarn to make.

The pattern comes with the choice of 7 different stitch squares.  I chose 5 and did each color in one stitch motiff. I used the Harris Tweed, Pennant Stitch, Horizontal Dash, Stockinette Stitch Check, and the Basket Stitch.

I am sure this will be happy in its new home later this month!

Head on over to Tami’s for more FO posts!

  1. Wow, the blanket looks amazing! Lovely bold colors, very unlike the pastels that you normally end up with in baby yarns. I’m sure it will be well-loved!
