A WIP for my daughter-in-law's friend
I am working on a baby blanket using Caron One Pound yarn in the colors, White, Royal Blue,Scarlet red, and Black. It is a chevron pattern . I started with the white , knitted 2 1/2 inches of the white, 5 rows of black, 2 1/2 inches of the Royal Blue, 5 rows of the black, 2 1/2 inches of the Scarlet. So far I have a little over of 15 inches in length done. So not quite halfway through with it. But I will be finishing it before Dec. Because I have to send it to my daughter in law so she can gift it to her friend who is having the baby. The parent is a Giants fan so that is the reason for the Red White and Blue colors scheme. I added the little bit of black to make the colors pop.

That sounds great. I think pastels for babies are highly overrated anyhow. You'll post a pic when it's a FO?

That should be pretty!

I think of all the baby things I've made for my daughters friends I've only done traditional colors a couple times. The bright colors are usually way more fun!

I agree. Babies look wonderful in the brights (of course, babies look fabulous in everything). Good choice. This sounds like a beautiful blanket and I'm looking forward to the picture!

yes I will post a picture of it when it is finished and blocked. It looks so good to my hubby and I, daughter thinks I should not have used black but she has a very different view of things that we like. Daughter-in-law will love it and I am sure the parents of the baby will too.

I am almost finished with this baby blanket. I am on the last red stripe, then 5 rows of the black and then the last 2 1/2 inches of white and I can bind off !
