Another Doll Blanket

I decided to try my hand at another crochet edging. This time, the recipient was the sweet, Corolle baby that my daughter received for her first birthday. I constructed the blanket just like the one in my previous post, but I used a different crochet pattern called "Picot Fan". Little by little, I am getting the hang of crochet!
Corolle dolls are just the sweetest. They all come with a delicious, vanilla scent that is not overpowering at all. This one happens to be 12" long--just right for little mommies to snuggle and hold.
Now that I've gotten the hang of crochet edging, I plan on using it a lot more. The flannel I used for this doll blanket is by Robert Kaufman, and it is so thick and soft that I'd like to use it to make my little one a sheet set for her toddler bed. Right now she is still using the puppies-on-a-blue-background sheet set that I made for her brother when he was her age. (Not that she cares, but I'd love to make her something girlie and just for her!) There will be a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and a sweet pillowcase edged in--you guessed it--crochet!


  1. I love this sweet little blanket. You do a beautiful job on the crocheting. The baby is darling too!

    1. Thanks! I'm pretty comfortable with edgings, but I'm still getting stumped with patterns for other things, like doll clothes. I bought a darling doll clothes book the other day and have been trying to make a bonnet, but I can't figure it out. Help!!!
