Here are a couple of things I've made for a baby shower that I'm going to on the W/E. The baby's nursery is Mickey Mouse themed although the baby's sex isn't known. I couldn't resist making the little newborn hats. The little blanket is made in the corner to corner style.


Here is the information on where I got the designs
the hats are from Repeat crafter me under crochet

the blanket is from redheart.com Corner-to-corner throw (crochet)

Hope this helps anyone who is interested in them

I had a close look at the picture of your blanket and tried it out. But now I see you posted a link. Well, I may have done it a bit different I love the start I made. The yarn is a mix of three very thin ones and need a 3.5 mm hook. I knitted a couple of blankets diagonally but the result was never quite square and I love that this crocheted one has a 90 degree angle. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

Now wouldn't it be perfect if the mom had twins so both hats could be worn? :) You did a beautiful job of your stitchery. I've never heard of the "corner to corner" method, which I'm guessing is crochet. But it is wonderful, regardless of what you call it. Is this method anything like setting quilt blocks on point, so the work is started from a point instead of a corner?

Very lovely. It look like one that I have done. If I remember correctly it is basically double crochet. By doing it on the diagonal you can pretty much make it any size you want. It works so well!

Although the caps are adorable, (who can't resist Mickey?), I love the work of the blanket. It should be nice and warm this winter, since it is closely stitched. Love the color too. Very nice, makes me want to sit and crochet, but these hands don't want to cooperate sometimes. I am not familar with the method corner to corner style,can you explain?-Toogie
