My cousin and his wife had baby #2 and I thought I'd follow tradition and make a blanket for her like I did for her sister.

Here it is!

Thanks everyone! It was my favourite blanket that I've made. Giving it up was hard lol.

That thick texture stitch will make your blanket nice and warm. Turned out lovely. :heart:

Well this is ABSOLUTELY the yummiest baby blanket I've seen in a long time! The pattern stitch is very intriguing! Not hard I hope! I'm inspired to try it!

Your work is impeccable! The color choice is spot on!

Thanks for sharing!

My printer is (at this very moment) printing out this pattern! I looked at ALL THE OTHER 43 projects at Ravelry, and I must tell you...yours turned out the nicest! Your st st squares are like all the others, but your textured squares are much nicer...more lumpy and puffy...I think you must have used a better yarn! And your knitting gauge must have been extra nice to make the textured squares turn out so rich! So I'll watch out when I start this blanket! I want my blanket to turn out as like yours did!

Did you see some of the other blankets?

I even like your blanket better than Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's! :thumbsup:
