What could be cuddlier than a garter stitch blanket?
Pattern: Moderne Baby Blanket
Yarn: Cascade Sierra, 4 colors, 2 skeins of each color
Needle: US 7 (My harmony options)
Started: Sometime around January 2008, while I was pregnant with Pigeon
Finished: June 25, 2009
Mods: The next to the last block was supposed to be 54 garter ridges. I did 3. The blanket was big enough. Another common mod is that I did not bind off every block. For my needs, the applied I-cord gives it enough stability.
Here you can see that 3 ridge block. I really wanted to do the block, but didn’t want to add much length to the blanket. And since we’re looking at it, here’s the tutorial I used for the applied I-cord.
And here’s the garter intarsia section. It wasn’t hard, just a little annoying.
The one other thing I did that I’d highly recommend to anyone is to work away the ends as you knit. It saved me a lot of time at the end!
And for reading this far, you get a special bonus FO!
