Three beautiful baby blankets, all with fun and interesting stitch patterns to challenge, and all worked in Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton. The Fisherman's Rib Blanket (blue) has easily rounded corners with an overall stitch pattern and simple crochet edge to finish. It is worked in a lofty rib that makes the blanket extra soft and squishy, like a blanket should be. With this rib stitch, both sides of the blanket will be different. Make it in any color, for any baby. The Lace Rib Blanket (pink) uses a simple rib for the border and switches to a lovely lace pattern for the center panel. A perfect pattern for your first lace project. The center stitch pattern has
great definition that shows up beautifully against the simple rib of the border. Not just for girls, this is a lovely blanket in any color it drapes beautifully and is light and airy! The third blanket, Broken Rib (ivory) is a meditation in yarn. Worked with only knit and purl stitches, the final blanket looks almost architectural. A beautiful combination of stitches in a beautiful yarn, making for a blanket that drapes gently. Worked in cotton, it will be the perfect cover for those cool summer nights and gentle days.
