Candy Stripe Blanket 2

Candy Stripe Blanket

With the very cold and rainy weather, I find myself on a path of knitting or crocheting. Beginning a third needlecraft project, this one is a blanket for a toddler. If all goes well, it should be at least 36 by 40 inches. I found nine skeins of this verigated yarn and thought it would make a wonderful blanket.

The edges are done in the moss stitch. The body was supposed to made in a modified farrow rib pattern, however, when I tried this it did not lend itself to the outcome. The pattern competed with the verigated yarn So I changed the stitch pattern for the body of the blanket to consist of just two rows (repeated). Row 1 is knit 3, purl 1 till the border. Markers are used for easy transition at the side borders. Row 2 is purl 3, knit 1.

I will post pictures of the finished project once I’m done.

    That’s a lovely afghan. Doesn’t it feel great to complete a project? I’m always thinking of the next one when one approaches completion.
