For my fabric and yarn pieces, there is normally a reason for their creation – they take too much work to be just ‘playing’. So it was for this crocheted pompom blanket, finished just in time for a baby shower and the imminent arrival of ‘Pickle’. Following a pattern, I crocheted a ridiculous number of pompoms, joined them together one by one, row by row. Some might say mindnumbing, others meditative. I plump for labour of love 😉
I used acrylic baby knit yarn to ensure the blanket is washable. That said, I think I would still be washing in a net bag or pillowcase to avoid stretching the joins.
