Like I mentioned in my last post I love knitting baby items and my absolute favorite are baby blankets. Here are a few I have knitted in the past year. I mostly use Bernat Softee Baby for my blankets because its so soft perfect for babies.
On this one I used Soft Peach from Bernat Softee Baby . The pattern is called Sculptured Terrace from 99 knit stitches by Leisure Arts. I added the lace to make it look bigger because the blanket itself was too small. I like how it looks and its very different to the other baby blankets I have made in the past
This one I used Soft Green from the Caron Simply Soft brand. I decided to try something new so I did the middle mostly in stockinette with a few little shells. For the border I used the Little Shells pattern also from 99 knit stitches leaflet. I love this one and what to try this style of blanket again. I liked knitting the border as I knitted the rest of the blanket. It's so much easier than having to pick up stitches later or having to sew on the border.
These are both just gorgeous :) I was wondering if you could give me the pattern you used for the second one, with the shells and a listing of your materials. I have a friend who, after 10 years of marriage, has finally gotten pregnant and I want to make this for her :)ReplyDelete
