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.

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.
