Peacock inspired baby blanket

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It's not a traditional baby blanket, which suits my sister-in-law perfectly, and each square is slightly different I also like the underlying diamond pattern the corner stitches made. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch your dye lots. I ran out of Homespun with 3 squares left, and so the very outside border is a slightly different shade.

What you will need

  • Lion Brand tweed stripes yarn for the squares
  • and Homespun in purple haze for the borders.
