Amanda Christening Blanket

Following on from my two triangle shawls, Clematis Shawl and Vintage Clematis Shawl (shawl pictures and links at bottom of page), and at the suggestion of one of my testers, I designed this really cute Christening blanket. The pattern is available on Ravelry (click here) and Love Crochet (click here).

The blanket is named after the tester, who decided I should turn this design into a blanket. And so it became the ‘Amanda Christening Blanket’.

I wanted something that was special, and had a special border that stood out. I think I have achieved that goal with this blanket.

It has spent the past month with my testers, who have helped to make the pattern what it is. They impressed me not only with finding my errors (or what I like to call my Boo, Boos), but they also used varied yarns and the results were really amazing.

The choice of yarn can define a pattern and how it looks. I used James C Brett Dk (click here). Below are a few example of my testers work and what they produced. I love them all!!!
