This pattern was initially designed for The Stitchin' Mommy, and first appeared there as a contributor post. A friend of mine from work and his wife just had a gorgeous little boy back around Halloween time. I have been wanting to make something for them, but haven't been too inspired until just recently. I decided I would make a nautical colored blanket for baby Leo using my I Love This Soft Baby Ripple Blanket, however, once I went back to the pattern, I decided I wanted to change it up some. This blanket would be a great baby shower gift, or as part of your nursery. The size makes it great for changing baby's diaper, tummy time and cuddling. It's also longer than my I Love This Soft Baby Ripple Blanket so I'll work great for toddlers and children also. I put it on the legs to see, and it covered them comfortably with my feet left hanging out. Now, I think I want one to use when I am sitting up in bed crocheting! Materials: - 1220 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used two strands of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn held together. About one and 2/3 skeins of Light Taupe, 1 full skein of Navy Blue, and about 3/4 of a skein of Soft Blue. Bulky/Chunky will also work too. - M13/9mm Crochet Hook - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends - I like to use a #18, or #20 This PDF contains full written instructions, 5 pages and 2 photos - one main photo and one showing my tips for tackling the various yarn tails.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
