FO Noah’s Ark Baby Blanket

I completed the Noah’s Ark Blanket this past Saturday and I am very pleased with how it came out. It was so much fun to crochet and was a nice change from knitting. Even though I consider myself a fast crocheter and knitter, I believe anyone would consider this project a fast crochet. So if you want a really cute, easy and fast baby gift for your grand baby, baby or someone special I would whole heartily suggest this blanket.

Here is a close up view of the ark and animals.

I found this cute cloud pattern on Ravelry by Andrea Moberly (Rain Cloud) and thought it was the perfect addition to this project! She is a very talented designer! I also just purchased her JoJo the Giraffe pattern and I am looking forward to making it sometime soon!

You can purchase her JoJo the Giraffe pattern on Ravelry and store it in your Ravelry library until you are ready to start it which is great. If you are not on Ravelry you can find the pattern at her Etsy store.

I wanted to show the back of my blanket too, as I think it’s very important to take the time to sew your ark and animals on carefully so that no thread seams show on the back. After all you want the back to look nice too!

Noah’s Ark Baby Blanket

My most recent project is this cute little baby blanket by Michele Wilcox. It is the Noah’s Ark Baby Blanket and the pattern is in the Crochet! Magazine, May 2008 issue.

I am finished with all of the animals and am now working to complete the background sky part of the blanket. This has really been a quick, fun project and the pattern is very easy to follow. I also love the yarn that it calls for which is TLC Cotton Plus. This is my favorite cotton yarn to use for dishcloth’s as it retains it’s size and doesn’t shrink and it doesn’t fade. So, this is a perfect yarn for this project. It is also very soft and drape able.

Here is a little preview..
