I needed to come up with several summer baby gifts this year, and designed this blanket to fit the bill! Using larger size needles for Dk yarn gives this quick-to-knit baby blanket an open, airy texture. Great for summer babies if made with cotton yarn. I have also included helpful hints on making color choices, so you can get the Beach Umbrella Stripe effect.
The gauge is not important for this project because the baby doesn't care what size the blanket is!
Now that I'm working part-time, I have been able to get back to spending more time knitting for all my kids and grandkids. Whenever I get an idea for a project, and can't find the perfect pattern - I just design my own! I love sharing the finished patterns, and hope others might find that my designs are: "Just what they had in mind!"
