The Maybelle Baby Blanket




What a ride this was, making this Maybelle Baby Blanket. Sooooo much fun!

Maybelle Baby Blanket TILDA Yarn Pack - available soon.

His name is Isak. My new nephew. He has two very excited and proud big brothers: Axel and Arvid. My brother now has a platoon (as he is a military officer...), not a football team, in his home. He is adorable, little Isak, and I made this blanket for him. Although when making it I was convinced it was going to be a girl... But you know what, boys needs flowers too. :)

This is my Maybelle Baby Blanket and I'm so so pleased with it and i have to say it has been the most enjoyable project. Quick, easy, high pretty factor and great satisfaction. A perfect blanket for a new person arriving into this world. I started and finished it within a few weeks, dividing into 4 steps and finishing each one within a time frame. It is the first time I have ever done  a project in that way. With discipline and organization. I often get distracted and start in something new, work on half a dozen projects at the same time... And never seem to finish any of them within a decent time frame. But this time I did. It was great! I should execute a project and plan it more like that in the future. So much more efficient.

I'm currently writing down the full pattern. It will be posted later this week as it will be a FREE pattern, prone to the copyright of the Maybelle Flower which belongs to 6ishthusfish. I will guide you through all the steps of making this pattern in both English and Swedish, with pictures and all. I'm almost there, just a few more Step-By-Step pictures to be taken, a few more links to be added. I'll let you know. I think it will be a bit of a Maybelle Baby Blanket frenzy over here the next few days. And why not? It is just so pretty this blanket, don't you think? And last but not least: I'm putting together a Tilda Yarn Colour Pack for this blanket too which will be available in my Etsy Shop. Stay tuned.

  1. Beautiful! I started making flowers for a blanket with some self striping BRIGHT yarn! Chroma in the ferris wheel colorway.

    I am going to use natural to go around the flowers and join them. Thanks for the pattern idea!

  4. Well done! Love the colours. You are so right about cotton being heavy for a big blanket. I certainly found that out. I will have to try and match your lovely colours with something like merino yarn. I could have sworn I saw other yarn on your shop before. Do you still do it? Going to make some flowers with the vintage pack you sent me and some of the squares for a cushion. Thank you for all your hard work. Lesley.
