FO--Hip Hop Blanket
This bunny blanket was my first attempt at intarsia and I'm really happy with how it turned out. The pattern came from the book Stitch 'N Bitch Superstar Knitting by Debbie Stoller and the yarns used were Karabella Aurora for the blue field and beige bunnies and S. Charles Collezione Micio for the fluffy white tails and bunny. I made this for a dear friend who recently had a baby girl.




The angle may look odd because I draped the blanket over the seat of my couch. Finished dimensions are approx. 30" by 30". Thanks for checking it out!
