The hard part is done. Little more black, and a border and this blanket is FINISHED!
***Edit*** This exact pattern is no longer available. I will however be making a similar pattern.
The pattern was in shades of grey, but this is a blanket for a young boy I wanted to add more color to it so it wasn't so harsh. The border will also have grey, blue and yellow to help lighten up the intensity of the black within this blanket.

|Thanks to Amanda for submitting this picture.|
She really brings this outfit to life.
This piece consisted of many pieces that were eventually stitched together. Per customer request the cocoon was solid crocodile stitch. A knit waistband was added along with an elastic core for a comfortable fit. The headband was knit for maximum stretch with a starfish adornment.

Hat came out very cute and fits well. This hat would also be cute with a small VT embroidery patch on the front without the white stitching. Quite possible that i may make more, with embroidery patches and without pom-poms for the boys.
The pattern for this can be found here. She has the most amazing pattern too. Heavy on the pictures but very thorough on her explanations on every stitch.
I absolutely love how this turned out. It was a quick order. Customer requested this and after purchasing yarn I had less than a week to figure out the stitch that was close to the customers inspiration photo and to stitch this up. After some procrastinating on my part I spent a little less than 3 days working this up.
