This is an afghan that was given to my parents as a wedding gift from my great grandmother in Newfoundland. My brother is getting married this summer and I would LOVE to make one for him. Nobody in the family has any idea about the pattern. Any ideas on what it's called or where I can find it?? Thanks a bunch!!
Hi and welcome. That's a lovely blanket. This looks similar I think. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...baby-blanket-2 I went to www.ravelry.com and searched for "blanket" and this was on page 1 of 152. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sear...ptioned_thumbs You can search for "chevron" or "ripple" and maybe other terms to narrow it down. Could you provide a closeup of the stitches? It looks like there might be crochet involved, I assumed the blanket is knitted but can't be sure - my eyes just ain't so great for detail in small photos these days. BTW joining Ravelry is free and doesn't get you spammed.
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..

Beautiful work and a wonderful idea for your brother's wedding present. I think GG has the pattern in the baby blanket. Usually these blankets are knit horizontally but yours looks to have been knit in vertical strips that were then crocheted together.
