Finally Finished Friday

08 Apr
Basket weave baby blanket in pastel green

All I can say, is *WHEW*

I have worked solely on the baby blanket and it’s finally done! This is the same blanket that started out as a bobble blanket, was frogged, and then re-started in the basket weave pattern.

I have not had time to block it and honestly, it lays pretty flat and square.

The pattern is a simple basket weave in squares of 5 stitches. I couldn’t decide on an edging and the comments made sense – I had to take into consideration that I don’t know the gender so I didn’t want anything too frilly and I also needed to consider the pattern of the blanket. I didn’t want to conflict with the pattern by putting on a busy edging.

So – I went simple. The edging is a simple sl/dc in all the stitches around. It adds a little frill but not enough to compete with the pattern of the blanket.

I have to say that I really do like this blanket and I hope that my friend and his wife appreciate and enjoy it.

    That is beautiful. I think basket weave is a classic pattern and I'm sure the recipients will appreciate it!
