FO: Patchwork Baby Blanket
I have finally finished this blanket that I have been working on for months, a bit at a time. I made each square, then last night and today I put them together and added the border. I haven't had a chance to wash it or anything yet, so it still seems to look a bit wonky and not at all as square as it should be lol! More pictures of all the individual squares here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/2289101...7600037224805/

That looks great. What a nice way to learn and practice different stitch patterns.

Fantabulous!! The stitch definition is amazing! Mind sharing which stitch dictionaries you used?? (could be helpful for another thread asking for which ones to buy)

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone! To answer a few questions - I used an old book that my mom got me in the 80's, its called Bucilla Knitting Primer. It has 100 different stitch patterns and instructions for how to make a blanket with the squares. I'm almost certain that you can't get this book anymore, but I'm sure some of the newer books out there would have something similar. Each square is knitted, then a row of single crochet is added around each square to make them a bit more uniform (each pattern has a different amount of stitches) and make it easier to put them together. I then attached the squares together with a row of single crochet. To finish it, I added 4 rows of single crochet, one in each color. I debated about sewing a backing fabric on it, but I don't htink its necessary, and the baby its intended for is due in April and won't need the extra warmth!
