Faded Love as a Baby Blanket

Faded Love CAL is ongoing now, and you can chat and share on my Ravelry board or our private Facebook CAL group (Crochet-A-Long with JulieAnny.)  As ever, if you purchase yarn through my links to Deramores (US) or (UK) (Pull down menu for other countries,) I will receive a commission, thanks!  If you send me your invoice number and Ravelry name (send in a message through email , Rav, FB, or here) I will send you the pattern as a gift.   I made a smaller version as a prototype for this pattern (the join method is different) but you can see that it makes a cute baby blanket with fewer squares and colors. With the recommended yarn, Scheepjes Stonewashed XL, keep in mind that each skein of MC is good for 4 blocks, and each skein of CC is good for 3 blocks, then you’ll need 2 or 3 skeins of MC for join and border. Each block is about 8 inches, so you can get an extra small baby blanket with only 12 squares, approx 26″ x 34″ with 5 skeins MC and 4 skeins CC. A little larger baby blanket of 20 squares ( 34″ x 42″) with 7 skeins CC and 7 skeins MC.

With this one I didn’t take advantage of the 3 blocks per skein, but you get the general idea. 🙂

  1. Pinterest is where I saw this baby afghan pattern faded love. It’s so pretty that I thought I would write and tell you that I really liked it. Thank you for sharing the picture of it on Pinterest. Would love to have the pattern but am unable to pay for it. Just wanted you to know that I think your patterns are beautiful.
