For the next two weeks, I wanted to create a couple super simple patterns that could be worked up quickly — items that would make great gifts. Because even if it isn’t a holiday, we still manage to give gifts and make donations year round, don’t we?
So this week, I designed the cutest little lap afghan, a lapghan if you will. (If that’s not already a word, it really should be! Ha!)
I’m so excited to give you the patterns for the hats and booties that match the Rag Quilt Style Baby Blanket! There are three size options available for both the hats and the booties. Perfect for a growing baby!
These patterns are easy and work up seriously fast, which is great if you’re looking for something to give as a gift short notice or you just don’t have a ton of time to spend crocheting.
I’ve also included two trim options. If you feel like the ruffle is too feminine, simple single crochets can replace it. I showed the results in the grey version.
Does anyone remember rag quilts? Does anyone still make them?
I remember some of the quilts that my grandmother used to have and I sincerely wish that I could’ve gotten my hands on a couple. I have no idea if she still has them or if they’re long gone.
So this week’s crochet pattern was inspired by the beloved rag quilt!
You can never have too many, especially the warm ones when the temperatures are low. Then there is the chance of spit ups or other messes. It’s like baby clothes. You always need a ton,just in case. And what a fantastic combo to have a warm blanket AND it’s handmade.
Can’t beat that.
