Found this pattern - Baby's Best Bumpy Blanket.

I have made a test square to try out the pattern, and it's easy to remember and is a nice thick-ish finish.

I have a 400gm ball of cream Aran, and I'll probably use a 6.00-7.00mm hook.

Our son's friend and his wife have announced they are expecting around Christmastime, so I shall make it as a baby blanket, too.

One of the Ravelry pictures shows a chocolate-colour blanket lined with fabric - I think I shall do the same.

Looks good, Val, especially the lined one.  I've got another pattern for a similar, textured baby blanket which works up quickly, think it's called 'Done in a Jiffy'.  I often use this pattern, using Aran and a No.7 hook.  It's somewhere on my computer but I can't find it at the mo, will have another look later and post the link to it (if/when I eventually find it!  whistle ).

Ok, have found it, it's this one (I hope that's worked!).  There are 2 patterns, the first called 'Crochet in a Weekend', the second 'Done in a Jiffy', it's the second one I normally do.  They're by a lady called Marie Anne St. Jean on Ravelry.  I do mine in Aran with a No. 7 hook.  I've made it often and it always comes out well, it's incredibly easy to do and has a lovely texture to it.

 

*Edit

Link doesn't seem to have worked (it goes to Fiona's blog for some unknown reason!  eeek ).  I guess you could probably find it if you google for it, or look on Ravelry.  Sorry about that, user error/blonde moment I expect  big_laugh  ponder

Try this link, Done in a Jiffy, it is on Ravelry, but it is no longer a free pattern!

Drat! smile

The other pattern, is it also on Ravelry?

Oops, sorry Val, when I originally got the pattern (a couple of years or so ago) it was free from the lady's blog, I had it in my favourites.  Then one day recently I noticed it had vanished, her blog domain had closed down for some reason.  As it was a favourite pattern that I do a lot, I googled and found it - and her - on Ravelry recently....only as you say, it's no longer free.  So I paid up and got it downloaded.....she sent the Jiffy one and another one included as well.

I'll email you!
