I used KnitPicks Brava Bulky again; I kind of think it’s perfect for baby goods. It’s machine washable and pretty soft. It doesn’t hurt that it’s bulky and knits up superfast!
Glamour shot! In the amazing office of Hoodzpah Art + Graphics. I can’t wait for a real action shot of my new nephew with the blanket!
I went with skinnier stripes in this version and added some black for more contrast. Also into the large chunk of white for the last third of the blanket; kind of makes the darker, more somber colors feel lighter in a way.
Chevron is sort of everywhere but that won’t stop me from loving it!
The thing about flat knitting is that there is a right side and a “wrong” side. The wrong side refers to the backside or the inside of a knitted piece. It’s the side that isn’t usually seen and usually hides all the blips (those little extra white stitches that form a very slender row of white). But, I rather like the blips. It’s like a bonus stripe. The more stripes the better, really.
