Ever since before I was pregnant I had looked at Little Doolallys baby blanket patterns but never had the need to make one. One of the first things I did when I found out we were expecting was to order the yarn for her fantastic Hello Deer baby blanket. It was going to be my holiday project, being a little smaller than previous blankets it was perfect for making in the heat of the south of France. The pattern was straight forward to follow, and after a little of a panic on how to create the deer and a few tweets to Amy aka little Doolally, I was sorted. I managed to complete the bulk of the blanket whilst we were on holiday, then with a few extra days in the sunshine once home, the edging was also complete.
It took me quite a while redoing a lot of the stitching when attaching it to the blanket, as I couldn’t quite get it right. It’s still not perfect but I am delighted with the finished design. It’s lovely and cosy and I can’t wait for baby Plant to arrive and try it!
