Creativebug is an amazing portal for crochet lovers because it offers variety of patterns and tutorials, including this fun and helpful crochet-along to make the Bright Eyes Baby blanket with Edie Eckman.
Creativebug is a subscription based crafts library and for a small fee you will have access to tons of cute projects like crocheting fruit, toys, bags, blankets, bracelets and much more. They often have special offers to join for free or discounted fee. By the way, I just signed up with only $5 for two months of access.
Bright Eyes Baby Blanket
And I chose the adorable Bright Eyes Baby Blanket as my first project. I had suitable yarn at home but not enough for the whole blanket, so I decided to make a sampler:
The baby blanket tutorial includes written pattern and videos. It is nicely organized into separate parts and that’s why it is especially helpful for beginners. Starting with instructions to make the squares, continuing with joining the squares and ending with the edge for the blanket.
This is an excellent way to learn crocheting because you have these different resources at your fingertips. Creativebug baby blanket instructions include both written and graphical pattern, and in case anything is unclear you can play the video and Edie shows you exactly how and where to insert your hook. Perfect!
I especially enjoyed the video about joining the squares because it’s much more clear to actually see how the squares are positioned correctly. Moreover, Edie has some really helpful tips that make joining the squares enjoyable and the result is beautiful.
I have made a few baby blankets before but I learned the great technique of joining squares for the first time with Edie! Can’t wait to start my next project with Creativebug!
