5 Days of Crafting: Crocheted Swaddle

Merry Christmas! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season with your friends and family. 🙂

I just completed a crocheted swaddle for some very dear friends of mine. We found the free pattern here.  Crocheted Swaddle | Reflections of Happiness

Isn’t the stitch beautiful? It’s called the diagonal box stitch and you actually start from the corner rather than working in rows. The pattern is a little confusing, so a wonderful walkthrough on the stitch can be found here.Crocheted Swaddle | Reflections of Happiness

The swaddle didn’t take all that long to make; this stitch comes together very quickly. Other baby blankets I’ve made have taken months and this one only took about a week to complete.Crocheted Swaddle | Reflections of Happiness

These instructions also came with this pattern to print out and give with the crocheted swaddle. Crocheted Swaddle | Reflections of Happiness

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my 5 Days of Crafting posts! Next week I’ll continue with my recap from our Around the World Trip. Next stop: Iceland!
