Paris Matelasse Circular Baby Afghan


This baby blanket pattern is also designed by Priscilla Hewitt  and I crocheted it using Caron Simply Soft in the color ice blue and contrast color Mist from Hobby Lobby’s Soft Secret yarn.  When I look at this blanket it reminds me of ocean waves. It is a great baby blanket for that beautiful little one or a cozy lap blanket for an adult watching tv or relaxing. This Baby Afghan is so soft, warm and cozy perfect for fall and winter, feels heavier then  a light weight baby blanket due to the Caron Simply Soft wt 4 yarn and measures 44” in diameter.  Pattern called for a 3wt yarn but I really like how mine crocheted and feels.

Circular Baby Blankets

This baby blanket was a pattern designed by Priscilla Hewitt called the Lille Matelasse Circular Baby Afghan and can be found on Ravelry. I used two colors of the Baby Bee Pompadour, 3wt yarn in blue and white that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. This crochet blanket was a joy to work and it is so soft and beautiful, perfect for a shower gift or for that special little one in your life.

The matching bootees and bonnet coordinate perfectly and the luxurious Soft blanket Is a great backdrop  and wrap to keep a baby warm yet stylish.

The original pattern for the dress was created by Crystal Doedtman of the Bag-O-Day Crochet as a Christening Gown so I made a different version of the original and adjusted it to be a shorter special occasions dress. It is a simple pattern that can be instrumental in creating several other dresses just by using a different stitch. I love the fullness and the beautiful softness of the dress. I changed the bottom edging and made some other small changes to get the look and shape I wanted. The shimmering tulle is soft but I use a baby slip under it so that the tulle and buttons don’t touch the babies skin.

I love this elegant baby dress and it would be a great dress for those precious baby pictures and babies first trip to Church.
