I've finally finished the free pattern that I've been working on. (I actually finished a couple of days ago, but I've been living at the pool the past five days.) I'm calling this the Chenille Look Baby Blanket. The texture reminds me of the chenille bedspreads from my childhood. The blanket feels so lush and plush when it's finished and it will be a really warm blanket for those cold, Winter months.
I tried every camera I own and I couldn't get a decent photo with any of them. So...this is the best that I can do. It's a full length photo of the blanket.
A close-up shot of the texture and the edging.
The blanket folded up on my lap. Just because.
And one final texture shot.

***As always, please don't claim my pattern as your own. Please link back to my blog and give me credit. Please don't sell my pattern but feel free to make this blanket for giving or selling. I don't mind. The only thing that's "mine" is the pattern, not what you make with it. :) With this said, "Happy Crocheting!!!"
