Spiral baby blanket

A fun blanket with marine wildlife applique.

Started: 18th April 2016
Finished: 21st June 2016


Spiral Baby Blanket by Amber of Cthulhu Crochet (ravelry link)


King Cole Merino DK - white, lilac, pale blue and pale green.

6 mm hook


Managed to work out how to use 4 colours rather than just 2 by using instructions for ”How to crochet a 4 colour spiral”, really happy with how it turned out.

Edging is darker shade of green/blue treble scallops.

Finished blanket itself 20th May 2016.

Added 6 crochet appliques - rather more fiddly than the blanket but made it fun! A lizard; a dolphin; a sea horse; a crab; an angel fish; and a star fish.

Sewed on using technique shown in video at

Diameter = 68 cm.

Blanket and appliques weigh 240g in total.

Made for Jacob - new baby next door.  Kay and Adam seemed really pleased with it.
