"While I was pregnant with her, I crocheted her a baby blanket. I envisioned her as a girlie-girl type - one who would love the delicate textures of the stitches as well as the texture of the velvet yarn itself. I love the color purple, and new that’s what I wanted to use, rather than a soft “baby pink” color. I found the most beautiful deep “Majestic Purple” velvet yarn at Michael. and fell in love! Someday I will do a review of the Bernat Velvet yarn. I really do love the texture! — though I haven’t quite figured out what to do with the ends yet… They are a bit tougher to weave in than other yarns. Do you have any tips for me? I found the stitched used in Piper’s Blankie by scrolling through Daisy Farm Craft’s “Stitches” Instagram account. Do you follow them? They post the most beautiful patterns (many of them baby blankets) on their main IG account. Their stitches account walks you through some amazing stitches. I go there a lot for inspiration. They are actually writing a book about their favorite crochet stitches, and I am totally going to get it! I was given the opportunity to provide Piper’s Blankie baby blanket pattern as a free download in the 2021 Preemie Crochet Challenge hosted by Sunflower Cottage Crochet, and I jumped at the chance! You may not know this, but when I am not chasing my wild kids or wielding my Furls crochet hook, I am also a nurse! Up until the pandemic, I was a NICU nurse. (Oddly during the first 6 months of the pandemic there were hardly any babies in our NICU, and I found out I was pregnant with little Piper, and decided to be a SAHM.) So this Preemie Challenge really hits home for me. I know the importance of providing soft, warm textures to a little one. I have seem the impact of a handmade gift given to scared, confused, broken parents in their biggest time of need. If you would like to participate in the Preemie Challenge and donate your version of my pattern to a preemie in need, jump to the end of this post to find out more! "
