These are slightly more unusual crochet patterns using the King Cole Yummy Chunky range and are delightful nonetheless! The yarn is a soft and squishy polyester that is machine washable and comes in a range of solid and speckly shades which is perfect for those baby blankets!
I know that this is a little out there, but I could imagine the lacy blanket being a great gift for any of your goth friends who are having a baby - made in black and purple chunky yarn it would look incredible. You could try using King Cole Big Value Chunky which would give you the perfect colour range for this project.
You will need a 5mm and 6mm crochet hooks for this project.
