My sister needed a new Kiki in the worst way. My Aunt made us both crocheted blankets when our mom was pregnant with us. Back then, parents didn’t get to find out what they were having, so I got a pink and blue blanket. My sister got a peach and pale green blanket. They were both in a chevron pattern! I didn’t actually start using mine until my sister was born. I had already been through one Kiki in my 5 short years and decided to start using the blue and pink one when my sister got hers. They are still our comfort items. Maybe it’s weird. Who cares? I think that more people still have them and just won’t blog to the world that they still do have them. Moving on…
The first picture is of my sister’s Kiki two years ago:
Here it is today:
Do you see what I needed to do for her? Yeah, I agree.
I still wanted to use peach and green, but update it. That’s when I found the most glorious yarn. BERNAT Baby Jacquards in Orange Blossom.
Ombré peach yarn with green and (best of all) pink! Here is the thing about the sample picture. That little snippet is knitted, not crocheted. Most ombré yarn looks better knitted than crocheted. Trust me. But, I had a plan. It was my first time trying this pattern. I am usually not a piece-by-piece crocheter, but to keep the ombré looking beautiful, it had to be done.
Without further ado, Kaytie’s new Kiki.
Isn’t it beautiful? My sister loves it because it is so soft, and I love it because the ombré effect is just stunning. It was a hard pattern, and I am not sure I will do it again, but I love this Kiki.
