Lots to Love 8 Inch Moses Basket

Having finished 2 of the larger doll carriers it seemed like it would be a nice break to work on the smaller doll carriers as they require fewer strands of yarn.

The pattern for this carrier is Annie Potter presents Sweet Baby Doll Layette and you can purchase the pattern set here.

I generally extend the bottom rows to make the carrier wider and this year I experimented by closing the top a little to make it more like the larger doll carrier. While I might decrease the top stitches again, I don't think I'd close it quite this much when I make the Lots to Love 10 inch doll carrier.

I've been on a quest to finish up yarn where I can. This carrier is made with left over RED HEART Super Saver Ombre JAZZY and I thought I had enough to finish the project. When that proved not to be true I decided to use a contrasting color to finish and chose Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, Stripe - Retro and thankfully had plenty of that in stock.

The blanket is a fun pattern with a different stitch pattern. I used now unavailable Red Heart Sport Comfort Baby Yarn from my stash for the main blanket and Bernat Baby Big Ball Sport Yarn, Baby Yellow for the trim.
