There’s another sweet baby expected amongst my friends and this time it’s a boy! I’ve made a ton of girl things lately so I was excited to make something for a little boy. I love gray, it’s one of my favorite colors, and I wanted to do something simple and elegant so I went very low key for this project.
The pattern is very simple – just a half double crochet stitch for the whole thing in alternating wide stripes of gray and cream. I decided not to put a border around it to keep it clean and simple. This is one of the more minimalistic things I’ve made and it is also one of my favorites!

- Yarn needle to weave in ends (I use these Susan Bates Bent Tip Needles)
ch – chain
hdc – half double crochet
Row 1: hdc in the 2nd ch from the hook, hdc in all chain stitches

Repeat row 2 to your desired size changing colors at every 7 rows. Then weave in your ends.
