Would you believe this is the first time I’ve ever designed a blanket for a baby girl?

While the pattern looks complicated, the pattern is easy to remember so it makes a great to-go project. Plus, the majority of stitches are knit and there isn’t a single yarn over in the pattern.

The unique stripe design was accomplished by using 2 skeins of Peach and 1 skein of white and alternating skeins.

Knitting with 3 skeins at once might seem a little odd, but by switching between them and carrying the extra yarn along the edges, you will achieve a uniquely striped blanket with minimal finishing.

Finished size is approximately 31” by 30” but the blanket has a lot of stretch in both directions.

Although the pattern calls for circular needles, this project is knit back and forth using the extra length to accommodate the large number of stitches.

OPTIONAL - If you don’t like the look of the carried yarns along the edge, you should have enough yarn left to add a single crochet or other simple border.

As with my other patterns, you may use this pattern to create finished objects for sale. Please see Begone, Personal-Use only patterns in my blog for details.
