Last year I knit a reversible baby blanket for my friend Amanda's little baby Hazel. The first blanket was screaming hot pink (perfect for Amanda) but I had a terrible time photographing it.
So Miss Babs and I teamed up to make another sample, this time in a beautiful spring green. The yarn is Yowza, a lovely superwash merino in big 8 oz. skeins, and the color is called Spring Lettuce. It seems like everything I make is in this shade of green, but ... I can't help it, I love it so much.
|Marquise baby blanket|
The blanket is called Marquise because of diamond pattern reminds me of a marquise-cut diamond. It's just knits and purls, is completely reversible, and works up quickly into a thick and cushy blanket on big needles. (The pattern is given both as written directions and as a chart). You can get your copy here on Ravelry for $6...
|All snuggled up!|
Next week I'll be heading to the Chicago area for Stitches Midwest, where once again I'll be wrangling yarn with Babs and her crew. We have a triple booth: 317, 319, and 418! This year I've roped my mom into the mix, too. We're going to have one heck of a good time... and I'll have another pattern debuting at Stitches - perfect for using that skein of variegated sock yarn you just couldn't live without.
