As you can see, my boy loves it and enjoys sleeping on it. He couldn’t wait for it to be finished so he could try it on. He was a little annoyed that I tried to take some nice pictures of him while he was sleeping.

The light wasn’t too good, so I tried to set it up and he got annoyed with me, so I don’t have too many pictures of him to show you this time. He just got up and left the room and continued his beauty sleep on my husband’s desk chair. He totally ignored me; he is so funny sometimes!

For my Diamond crochet baby blanket, I’ve used: 400g of  Pure cotton yarn (8x 50g) (50 g= 170m/ 1.76oz= 185 yards) and a 3 mm hook.

cotton

This is a very high-quality cotton yarn. This yarn is made from 100% combed Turkish cotton, which is soft, flexible, and exceptionally durable. Textiles made with Turkish cotton stay beautiful for many years and only get softer with use. This yarn also excels when it comes to absorbency, but is quick drying at the same time. Whether you knit or crochet with this yarn, the stitches will stand out nicely and clearly. The color chart includes many beautiful colors, all you have to do is decide what you want. You can buy this yarn HERE.
