"Winnie the Pooh" Baby Blanket

I interrupt this regularly scheduled food blog to bring you some crochet inspiration.   If you're not into this kind of thing, I'll be back next time with something yummy to cook and eat. 

I made this baby blanket for a sweet new baby.  The nursery theme was Winnie the Pooh.  I searched the internet and Pinterest, and found this pattern on Dada's Place.  

This is the sweetest little baby blanket, and so much fun to make.  I used Hobby Lobby I Love this Cotton Yarn.  I really like this yarn and have used it on several blankets.  It is soft and washes well.  However, it does fade, and I would recommend hand washing it in cold water with a no rinse wash for hand knits and crochet.

The tutorial is very easy to follow.  If memory serves me correctly, the tutorial is for the bear square.  I believe I looked the other one up on You Tube or somewhere on the internet.  I can't really remember, but these things are easy enough to find.

This blanket is so soft and squishy, it is perfect for a baby.  I substituted french knots for the eyes instead of beads, for safety reasons.

I do hope the new family gets as much pleasure out of this little blanket as I did making it.  Knitting and crocheting is like zen to me, the rhythm, the counting,  the feel of the yarn in my hands, and such satisfaction when you get such a cute finished product.
