Aqua Baby Blanket

Hot off the Hook......

Aqua Baby Blanket
 
 
 
 


I like this blanket ~ it lies flat and doesn't curl so there is no need for an edging.
Although for a girl ~ a pretty scalloped edging would look cute.
 


The pattern is available as a free Ravelry download
 
 
I made my blanket with a single strand of DK
...... so I started with an initial chain of 95 stitches
After the foundation row - all following rows are the same - so it doesn't require a lot of concentration.
I found I could happily watch TV at the same time so this blanket seemed to grow fairly quickly

My blanket measures 70cm x 70cm

    1. Thanks Linda. I think if it was made in 2 x 4ply, or in aran, it would be too heavy for a tiny baby - but in DK I think it is great - and I too will certainly make it again.
