knitted chevron baby blanket
My cousin had a baby boy in October. Over the last 3 months, my mom, sister, and I have pulled out our knitting needles to make something for the little cutie. I've been itching to knit an afghan, and a baby blanket was the perfect solution. It's much smaller than a full-sized afghan, so it provides surprisingly instant gratification.
The Purl Bee's might just be my favorite knitting blog; they have tons of cute, easy-to-follow patterns. Their Chevron Baby Blanket pattern knit up pretty quickly; I finished it in just 2 weeks. The pattern is pretty easy, but it did take me a bit to get the rhythm of the counting down. Stitch counters helped immensely, and triple checking my counting was a must. Additionally, the yarn is knit doubled. I doubled the yarn by taking the outer and inner strand and winding them into one double-stranded ball. Now, I'll have to make a larger version for myself!
