Type of item: Accessory
I used Red Heart Designer Sport yarn
What was your inspiration?
My inspiration was the playpen, diaper bag and stroller set that we picked out for our baby boy. Any shade in the red family can be one of my favorites, so I made it the main color to create a plaid pattern to match his accessories.
What are you most proud of?
The neatness of the blanket and that I created it with minimal planning, as well as finishing it before the weather turned cold
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make your own bobbins from cardboard rather than carrying the yarn across. Since the colors change so frequently to create the patten, the bobbins allowed the color changes to be neat and the fabric isn't thick and stiff. This was a great project for me to practice making the color change as neat as possible so that the back is almost as neat
