Sports Throw Finito

 My post about this throw as a WIP is here.
 This is made with Purl Essence yarn and a size J crochet hook.
The adapted Classic Baby Blanket worked perfectly for this throw. A stripe generator helped me to place the navy stripes with the cream main color.
 The pattern for the little helmet is here.
A simple, flat circle is the shape for stitching details to kinda-sorta resemble a basketball and baseball.Now, the attempts at making a soccer ball were total disaster!! My stitching left much to be desired to even approach a suggestion of a soccer. Its disappointing because little grandson loves  playing soccer. Crocheting a baseball bat is not my forte either. I do have limitations!!
 
He is such a sweet boy that I know he'll love it even without a couple of things I wanted to include. The throw will fluff a bit after a gentle laundering. Right now, it looks too "stitchy" --- know what I mean?

What a cute blanket! I wish I could crochet/knit but apparently I didn't get the gene! Beautiful work and I love the appliques!

You did a fantastic job, I think one little boy is going to be very, very happy with it.
Hugs,
