Granny Stripe Baby Blanket – ready to wrap


I’m very happy this project is complete in plenty of time before the baby is due. My mum is giving this as a gift to a friend’s daughter. I had to buy a little extra yarn than I originally thought, but I wasn’t going to leave this without a really nice edge.

I think this will look really pretty on a baby’s cot.

The other end of the blanket is a mirror image, with a four row stretch of white in the centre. This is the first time I’ve attempted this type of blanket – it stitched up really quickly.

Completed using Panda Super Soft Acrylic (and it really was!). Lovely to work with, soft to snuggle in (the blanket that is). Didn’t really want to give this one away, but kinda had to – Mum paid for the yarn!
