Maybe you can remember the car seat blanket I made for my friend’s little one a couple of months ago. My friend really really liked the blanket and got many positive comments about it everywhere she went with it. So when her sister fell pregnant she asked me if I could make one for her as well. And of course it was hard to say no ;). So Brini- The Bunny Car seat Blanket was born. Actually I made this blanket already a couple of months ago and it was given as a complete baby set together with the rattle and the cuddly toy.
Brini- The Bunny Car Seat Blanket
- DK yarn in rose, cream and a tiny bit of black
- 7mm hook
- 4mm hook
- small pieces of cotton fabric
- sewing thread in contrast colour
- tapestry needle
sc= single crochet (US term); double crochet (dc, UK term)
dc = double crochet (US term); treble crochet (tr, UK term)
hdc = half double crochet (US term); half treble crochet (htr, UK term)
In my patterns UK terms are always given in brackets.
Let’s get started:
with 7mm hook and rose yarn
Ch 63 (you can make the blanket smaller or bigger by adding multiples of 3 ch’s)
Row 1: 2 dc (tr) in third ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, sc (dc) and 2 dc (tr) in same st*, repeat till end of row
end row with sc (dc) in last st, ch 2 turn
Row 2: 2 dc (tr), *skip 2 ch, sc (dc) and 2 dc (tr) in same st*, repeat till end of row end row with sc (dc) in top of ch 22 of previous round, ch 2, turn
Row 3-41: repeat row 2 fasten off and weave in ends at the end of row 41
with cream hdc (htr) around your blanket to give it a nice finish.
Now you need the Bunny head, otherwise it’ll just be a very nice blanket without a bunny attached to it. This one is easy. Follow my head pattern for Brini-The Bunny Rattle, just don’t fill it with as much stuffing as you would do for a rattle and sew it onto the blanket
And Ta-dah you’re done :)
This time my Brini is a little bit cross-eyed… I clearly need to improve my embroidery skills ;) But luckily she still got loved by her new owner :)
I hope I’ve inspired you to make your own Brini newborn set now and I would love to see how it turned out so please feel free to post a picture to my Facebook wall or link the project to your Ravelry account. And don’t forget to follow me on bloglovin to stay updated on what’s happening here.
