I finished that blanket
I am seaming it together
id like some advice
my cousin's wife is due in December with her first child and does not want to know what she s having, so the baby blanket that she has commisioned for me to make will be in mint green and light yellow stripes (made in strips, to be sewn together later). I want to do an original pattern for the blanket, and since babies love texture, I want to do different stitch types for the different color strip(e)s.(two different types of stitches for the two different colors of strips). Purl ridges and moss stitch or seed stitch and moss stitch were my ideas for the blanket. (one for one color and one for the other color). I want to do the strips in about the same width that the strips were in the blanket that I am seaming right now (about 5-5 and a half inches wide, so about 27-29 stitches to cast on for any strip). I want to do it green, yellow, green, yellow, green, yellow ( I want to make six strips) as the order of placement for the strips when I seam it together. I want to do a border for the blanket but im not sure if it is necesary. If I do a border, I thiought about doing a scalloped eyelet edging or a basic lace trim (enough to go around all four sides) in green. I want the finished dimensions to be somewhat like that of the Heirloom Knit Baby blanket (the blanket that I am seaming together right now).

(note to all members reading this- all of the stitch type patterns are on lion brand's website under the FAQ in stitchfinder).
thanks

[quote=lucky_alf2;977123]webbfamily - that's a very pretty pattern! What color is your yarn?

Here are some picture of my baby blanket WIP. I just love how pretty it is turning out. I do wish it was a different color (buttery yellow), but I've been really trying to knit up my stash....I need to start the blanket for my SIL soon tho or I worry I won't make her due date!

i love your blanket, do you have the pāttern link or name as i'd love to make that one please

I have 1 on the go right now, its a stash one. just really basic one, it may end up being a bit bigger than a baby one as its for ds who's 5 justtp throw over him when its chilly

its a free pattern
I only had to modify it for the yarn weight (I used worsted weight yarn, so I made six panels instead of seven)

Hello!

Sure, I'll join.. I have one OTN now as a baby shower present. It doesn't have a pattern, just st st with a garter st border, so it doesn't curl.

How's everyone else's blankets going?

I'm glad this is an ongoing KAL because I have started another baby blanket. I am using this "Baby Bear" pattern: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/ba...by-blankt.html
I am using soft blue Bernat Satin for a baby boy. I will post a picture soon of my progress.

Baby Bear Blanket
This is my progress so far. I have made the borders 2.5 in. to give a 'frame' to the bears, and also because I am not using two strands of the yarn, as the pattern suggested. I am using one strand, and size 8 needles. I have 3 bears across, and with the borders, the blanket is 30 in. wide. I may do four rows of bears. The pattern is fun and easy to do -- only knit and purl -- but I would not call it a beginner pattern, because the instructions are not "beginner" style.
