So of course I crocheted! I crocheted quite a lot. Let's start with this, bear square blanket as this was his main pressie. I'm in LOVE with it, It's so good (if I do say so myself) I love how it worked out and the colours etc.

I tried a few different 'fluffy' yarns for the bear's face but was not happy with any, I find fluffy yarn infuriating to work with and my circles just were not up to scratch, so I stuck with my trusty Lullaby by Stylecraft and my three colours are Misty, Primrose and Denim. I adore this yarn, super soft and perfect for babies as it is washable.
The finished blanket is super soft and quite heavy and thick, perfect for his pram on these blustery Autumn days. I hope you like it James.
