Sunrays Baby Blanket -- a crochet pattern

The Sunrays Baby Blanket pattern to crochet is now available. This easy one piece blanket starts at the center and works out in rounds.

It uses single crochets, double crochets, and chain stitches. The increases create 6 rays or wedges that end in a shell border.

I used 3 balls of Baby Bee Sweet Pomp from Hobby Lobby to make this 40" across baby blanket. That's about 1,000 yards of sport weight yarn with a size H hook. (I used 2 colors in the pictured blanket because I couldn't find another ball of the Sweet Pea colorway in the dyelot I needed. I added a ball of Bare Blue and alternated it with the Sweet Pea to have enough for my blanket. I like how it turned out.)

If you make Sunrays in cotton it would make a nice tablecloth or use a fine weight wool for a shawl. You'll need to change the hook size and you may need more yardage if you do this.

The pattern contains written instructions and a crochet symbol chart for the baby blanket.The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store.

I love the idea that it can be a blanket or a table cloth. I know now what I can make for my sister for Xmas. Thanks for posting it and at a very nice price.
