WIP Baby Blanket Velvetspun
1 Attachment(s)
Here is a baby blanket I am doing in Velvetspun (at the request of Auntie who commissioned the work). The colors are slightly more pastel than they appear here. There isn't a pattern, just a stitch called Garter Stitch Chevron which I got from the 365 Knitting Stitches a Year perpetual calendar. I cast on 88 stitches, and yes, the purple sections are smaller than the white. It was a mistake, but I went with it thinking it made it a bit unique!

I've used that yarn before - it feels divine! That will be one lucky baby, all wrapped up in that softness. I wish I could have one big enough for me! :lol:

Looks great! I would never have known that one stripe was different from the others ;)

Well, the purple and the white are supposed to be the same, as in six rows. But I only did four rows of the purple on the first purple stripe, so I continued doing the six rows of white and four rows of purple. I think it still looks good.

I think it's this the blanket that's making you crazy??!?!

I wouldn't have noticed the size difference between the colors but since you pointed it out....I like it. :D

I like it too. It looks like pretty stripes on a white background. Lovely.

Yes, this is the one that is making me crazy. And it is so simple! I have knitted things much more complicated than this and not had as many troubles, but thanks!

How do you like working with that yarn? I made a sweater and a blanket with it and found it to be messy. When I cut the ends it fuzzed real easy. Do you have a trick for that. I would love to use it more because it is SO soft but. Man was it a mess and I am also worried that the stuff will just keep fuzzing off.
