~ first baby blankie ~



I finished my first baby blankie last night.  I used 2 rolls of yarn from my stash - peach and cream.  It measures 27" point to point.

I've already started on my 2nd blankie - it's another round ripple, but this one will have 18 points.  :)

Here's the link for the pattern I use:

  11. Hi Ms.Debi. What a beautiful blanket! Love the colors..Do you mind if I ask where this pattern came from? Is this from your BLOG dly's baby blankies? I have been working on this same type of blanket for a baby from a pattern on Ravelry, and I can't get it to lay flat. Did you have this problem at all? I tried rotating the points from 2dc, 2 ch, 2dc and 1 dc 1 ch, 1 dc, even 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc..and it doesn't work. Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?? Yours looks so perfect!

  13. Well aren't I embarassed...sorry, didn't see that at all. It is the exact same pattern as the one I have on my ravelry favorites that I've used. I've followed it, not sure what I did wrong..but it def does not lay flat. Thanks for letting me know. Just goes to show you it's my error. Take care Ms. Debi!

  19. Now that I pulled up your pic for an up close count of stitches, is it possible that you used a repeat pattern of (small v, large v, large v) for rounds instead of (2 rounds of small v's then 2 rounds of large v's)? This might be the magic answer to my blankie bunching!!!
