An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I used the double filet crochet technique that I learnt recently to make a little pram blanket. It measures 62 cm by 46 cm. I contemplated spinning wool for it, but decided to use a commercial 4-ply yarn instead. Because the fabric is double, I wanted a thin, consistent yarn so the blanket wouldn't finish up too thick and heavy, and to show the pattern off. I made use of Nichole Cupp's ZigZagging Reversible Hotpad pattern, enlarged obviously, to help me get the edges correct. It's important to start each row with the second colour in the right place, to finish up with a neat edge.
