Multi Colored Carriage Cover

There is a veritable baby boom among friends and family…so I am trying to kick out as many different baby items as possible.

In early May, my sis in law had a sweet baby boy and I crocheted a sleep sack and cap for him.

In late May (while we were traveling), a young woman at my church had a darling baby girl.

I used our traveling time to crochet a darling Carriage Cover.  I got the pattern out of a Bucilla Yarn Pattern Book from 1950.  It turned out beautifully.

Materials: 6 balls of yarn (or one of those giant ones) Crochet Hook Size 3

 

Approximate Size is 26″ by 32″.  Ch 170.  Work pattern 28 times.

Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd st from hook, *skip 2 sts, a shell of 5 dc in next st, skip 2 sts, 1 sc in next st; repeat from * to end.

Row 2: Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in first sc, *1 sc in center dc of next shell, 1 shell of 5 dc in back loop of next sc; repeat from *, end 3 dc instead of 5 dc in last sc.

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, 1 sc in first dc, * 1 shell of 5 dc in back loop of next sc, 1 sc in center dc of next shell; repeat from *, end 1 sc in top of turning ch.

Border: Ch1, turn, 3 sc in first sc (corner), * 1 sc in each of next 5 dc, skip next sc; repeat from * working to corner; 3 sc in corner; continue sc on side; work other half to corner being careful to keep even edge and working each corner.

Round 2: Skip 1 sc, 10 dc in next sc (center sc at corner), * skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc, skip 2 sc, 7 dc in next sc, repeat from * around, having a shell of 10 dc in center st at each corner.  Fasten off.

Add your favorite edging.  I did a small Picot stitch (my very favorite). 😉
