Knitted stripes Baby blanket No. 3

Here is my latest knitted stripes baby blanket in gender neutral colors. I love these colors together with the mild green and the pop of purple.

I used the random stripe generator for this. I really like it as a tool to see how the colors go together. I frequently play around with it for color inspirations and to get a visual of the blanket.

Here is the link to the pattern. I have made two such blankets earlier in yellow and grey and blue and red. I do really enjoy this pattern and with the updates in it, it looks even better. However, blocking is essential for this blanket to really show the stitches.

Circular needles

Finished dimensions: 25X35”

I did not add a separate edging other than the 6 stitch garter as border.

Spring Solid Stripes Baby blanket No. 3

Hello people,

This is the third blanket I am making in this pattern. It is a really simple pattern with some mindless knitting. Well not too mindless I made a couple mistakes on the way. You can check out the other two blankets I made in completely different color combinations- Midnight hues , in blues, and Verdant stripes, in greens and pink.

The idea behind this pattern is this really easy garter stitch blanket. I used a modification of this pattern which was made beautifully here.

Dark sage, Sage, Sunshine, Pumpkin and Autumn Red.

Finished dimensions: 24X31”

 

Changes to the pattern:

CO130

6 rows of garter stitch

K4 (K10 P10) till last 4 sts K4

(All wrong side rows are purl)

K4 P1 (K10 P10) till last 4 sts K4

Keep increasing by one Purl at the beginning of right side rows till there are 10 and then add knits till 10 and so on.

Last six rows garter st.

I did a four sts edging. I have done a separate crochet edging before and that looks awesome too. You can modify (Like I did from the pattern) to increase or decrease the size of the diagonal stripes by changing the number of sts in the repeat.
