Finally… Plaid Baby Blanket
9 July 2005
This object has consumed me for several months now… but finally it is finished.
The basic design is simple, but the implementation was mostly a pain. This is constructed of sport weight baby yarn. I knitted with two stands at once and had 8 active yarn sources at all times. At each verticle color change I had to cross the yarns to form a strong join. So every 3 or 4 rows I had to completely detangle the yarn. This will be the last plaid blanket I will ever make, so I took lots of pictures.
I wanted the blanket to be reversable, so I alternated between knit and purl squares. The blanket is edged with four rows and 3 stitches of moss stitch.
I love plaid and I definitely love this plaid baby blanket. I can imagine the pain that this one was to knit but the final product is gorgeous! Great job!
