::Bright as a Button Blanket Ta-Dah::



Button. Button. Who's got the button? BLANKET, that is!

I'm pretty jazzed about how this design worked out. It has texture and color and flexibility. It can be made any size, in any color scheme and is just stinking "cute as a button"! LOL!



One of the things I am particularly pleased with is
the border. The striping turned out altogether cool. And the little puffy scalloped edge adds great weight and texture but lays flat. I like that. A lot.




I love how the buttons look like they are stitched to the top of the square. And the beauty of the stitching around the perimeter is all worked into the design--easy peasy!


I recieved some great suggestions on my Facebook page for names for this adorable little creation...

...Cute as a Button 
...Button Up 
...Button, Button, Who's Got the Button
...Benjamin's Buttons
...Bust my Buttons
...The Felted Button

Alas, a tough decision. Since Felted Button is all about crocheting with color and buttons thrown in whenever possible--"Bright as a Button" seemed just right.

You can find the "Bright as a Button" Blanket pattern--all available by instant download now...

and finally, here on Ravelry.

I'll say hey howdy hey soon. Until then, be well, and Happy Hooking. Please do come visit me again.

My favorite Linky Parties are here. I'll be linking up with them! You should, too.

  10. Absolutely fabulous! I'm a huge fan of bright colors wrapped in white - I think it makes them POP! The border design is terrific as well. A cotton blanket is in my future and this one is now high on the list!
