Bertie blanket

Hello dear crafty ladies!

I am SO excited! I have finally finished the blanket for my great- niece or nephew in South Africa and I love it! Of course the baby doesn't have a name yet, but in the family it has been known as Bertie Bump...hence the name of the blanket. I made this up as I went along so wasn't sure how it would look until it was finished. I have to say that I am very pleased with it.

The yarn is Rico Essentials pure cotton.

Are you ready for a Bertie-fest????











Enjoy your week! xxx
