Sherbet Knitted Oddball Blanket Complete with Pretty Crocheted Border

Here's one more Knitted Oddball Baby Blanket finished. This one is worsted weight and it was named Sherbet. Doesn't it look good enough to eat?

Sherbet Oddball BlanketMy knitted section is the pink one at the top of the picture. I used Bernat Satin yarn in a color called Sea Shell. It was so soft and lovely, I just couldn't resist! I worked my section using the Farrow Rib Stitch which is pretty popular for these blankets.

Sherbet Oddball BlanketHere you can see the detail of the knit stitch, and the border I crocheted around the edge. For this border, I crocheted only two rounds of single crochet, then for the third round I worked a simple pattern of (2hdc, skip 1) along the edges and 4hdc in the corner stitches. For the final round, I worked 2 single crochet in each of the spaces between the half double crochet pairs of the previous round, and 3 single crochet between the 2nd and 3rd single crochet in each corner.

I think I'm on the list for just one more oddball blanket, and then I must take a break from working on them for a while. I was just contacted by our local library and asked to do a 4 session quilting class for children this summer, so I must prepare for that. I also have a few other things on my to-do list for Hooked On Needles, plus quite a bit of maintenance work I need to do on it. And I found out recently that the memorial golf tournament for which I am making an afghan to be used as a raffle prize is actually the beginning of August, when I thought it was sometime in the fall! Yikes! I better get on my horse here and get busy!

Next up will be the tutorial on beading in crochet, since so many of you have requested that!

Happy Stitching!

  • I've been looking for an edging for a Double Seed Stitch blanket which I'm going to make in Katia Maxi Merino (I couldn't afford the Soho merino). BUT, I think I've found my edging. I'm truly grateful to people like you who share their skill and expertise. I can knit, but I can't design, so thank you.

    Here's the blanket:

  • i love the border - but for some reason when i did mine it turned out like more of a ruffle than i expected - I do love it - just hoping my daughter has a girl so that the blanket i made is not too girly for a boy

    i did this border on a basketweave blanket
