I wanted to show the baby blanket that I recently finished!
The sprig stitch is made using double crochet stitches (treble crochet in UK terms). It is a pretty stitch to use if you’re wanting to experiment and try something different.
I was inspired to use this stitch after watching a video tutorial from Bella Coco. You can find her written instructions here. I used a lighter weight yarn than in the video tutorial, but you can still see how pretty it came out regardless.
I did make an error by accidentally doubling up a stitch on the border, and didn’t notice until I was already rows ahead.
I was torn over whether I should frog it. I decided to continue with the piece, and when I was done, I carefully sewed the mistake into the border of the blanket. I was think it was a pretty quick and effective fix – you may or may not see it in the picture I am holding 🙂
Using the sprig stitch, I did 120 chains in my foundation row, plus 3 chains (since you need multiples of 4 plus 3 stitches with this stitch). Then I just kept going! Here are the project specs:
Hook: G6 (4.25 mm)
Yarn: One Ball Bernat Baby Sport yarn in “Baby Baby Ombre” <- lol. This is a light yarn, 100% acrylic, approximately 893 yards (816 m).
Gauge: Does the baby care?
Finished dimensions: Approximately 49 inches long.
I’m hoping this will be a blanket little baby E. can cherish forever 🙂
Have a happy Friday!
