Crochet Techniques And Steps To Make The Grey Baby Blanket Simple Stars Pattern
As mentioned, the blanket is put together using simple Double Crochet techniques known in the US as single crochets. It is, therefore, necessary to be well acquitted and practiced with the basic crocheting stitches. Crochet stitches such as double treble crochets, slip stitches, chain stitches, and half double crochets.
The stars are later stitched and hooked up separately onto the already finished grey baby star blanket. The stars make it one of the most beautiful, unique, and aesthetically pleasing handmade pieces.
While crocheting the grey baby blanket, you will need to work with a 4.5 mm hook for the blankie’s main body. Then a 3.5mm hook for the borders and finishing edges. When you are done crocheting the baby blankie, the next part is the stars. The stars are crocheted using a 2.5mm hook for optimal results.
While edging out the blanket, it is crucial to work 2 or 3 stitches into each corner stitch. This prevents the blanket from losing shape. When crocheting a baby star blanket, most people prefer to use one color scheme on the main blanket. Then a different color on the stars so as to draw a beautiful contrast between the two.
