I seem to have hit on a successful design for baby blankets using a dense shell stitch pattern.
This is version 1 – with a Violet monogram as the baby is to be named Violet.
I used a lilac baby yarn, and striped it up with bands of a Robin multicoloured yarn. I did 2 rows in lilac, 2 rows multi, 2 rows lilac, 4 rows multi.
I really enjoyed making it once I’d swatched it out and worked out the ideal stitch count and border.
I plan to do another to take to fairs and also develop the pattern for sale – this will be my 1st commercial pattern so its a step forward!
Version 2 – A Layette Set
