Hello Beautiful Readers! Welcome back to my WIP Madness Corner! The next “WIP” I want to talk about is what I called “Blanket Para Bebe.” This is FO #52 for the year.
This blanket was housed in my Pink Mattress bag by The Knitting Broomstick. Jilly’s Etsy shop can be found here.
I started this blanket on 08/13 and finished this blanket on 8/25. It was a pretty quick knit, considering. I used the “Fuss Free Baby Blanket” pattern by Louise Tillbrook Designs and size US7, 4.5mm Knitters Pride Smart Sticks 24 inch cable, then I graduated it to a ChaioGoo red lace 60 inch cable once it got big enough.
I used Paintbox Yarns, superwash wool, Simply Aran in the “Vanilla Cream,” “Slate Green,” “Pistachio Green,” “Soft Fudge,” and “Red Wine” (in this order) colorways. To specify, I used 885 total yards. This is broken down as:
- Vanilla Cream: 153 yards
- Slate Green: 195 yards
- PIstachio Green: 191 yards
- Soft Fudge: 185 yards
- Red Wine: 161 yards
The plan was to have the Soft Fudge color frame the other colors. Here are some pictures of the blanket. I really love the way it came out! What do you all think?
Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
