"Eat - Play - Sleep - Repeat" Baby Blanket


 
 
My new design is finally finished!   A while back I had seen a cute baby quilt with the words
"eat, play, sleep, repeat" on it, and also some adorable fabric with those words and I wanted to find a way to translate this into a crochet baby blanket.  The blanket is worked in one piece in single crochet with bobbles used to create the raised lettering.  Each word's section has a chart to follow which indicates where to work the sc and bobble stitches.  Bobble stitches are very easy to do, and the pattern includs a photo tutorial on how to make this stitch.

I made this using Red Heart acrylic yarn so that is is easily washable.  The colors used:
White - 7 oz.
Orchid - 5 oz.
Delft Blue - 5 oz.
Spring Green - 5 oz.
Pumpkin - 5 oz.

Pattern is available in both my etsy shop and can also be downloaded instantly here in Ravlery.
