Blanket yarn again!

In August I finished a couple of more projects out of Bernat Blanket yarn.  When I saw the Eagle pattern, I had to buy it. It was so cute! The pattern actually uses 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together so it is more ‘squatty’ then mine. I wanted to make it out of blanket yarn. I used a smaller crochet hook to get a tighter stitch. That made it harder and took me longer as my wrist got sore. I used a K hook.  Since I used different yarn than the pattern, I was careful as I made the pieces to make sure it looked ok.  I love how he turned out. The pattern is Spirit the Eagle Stuffie by Snappy Tots. You can purchase it on Ravelry here.

The teddy bear is made out of Bernat Blanket Tiny yarn.  I am not a fan of this yarn as it is hard to see the stitches because of the thinness of the yarn.  I had the red that I wanted to use up. I couldn’t return it because I had tried a few projects with it. I found this teddy bear pattern and decided to make it. It worked up pretty easily. I will probably make one or two more to use up the yarn.  I saw someone else use the plastic eyes and nose and liked how they turned out. The pattern has you stitch on the face and that doesn’t always go well for me.  The pattern is by Yarnspirations here.

Babies!

I couldn’t get a good picture of this baby poncho. I didn’t have a model and the octopus was the best I could do 🙂 I made it out of Bernat Baby Blanket Tiny. I love Bernat Blanket yarn and was so excited to use the Tiny version when it came out. Unfortunately I don’t like it. I find it very hard to see the stitches and work with. I returned everything I bought but 2 skeins since I had tried to use them. I used one of them to make this baby poncho. It is very soft with a nice texture. The texture comes from a sc, dc stitch. This poncho took a long time to complete. Since the yarn is thin it takes awhile to get the height needed to form the poncho. It is a free pattern on the Yarnspirations website. The pattern is here.
