Bunting Baby Blanket (BBB)
In the Hand Knitting Design program at the Rhode Island School of Design, Lion Brand gave us a challenge to come up with a baby blanket using their Bon Bons
I used the Crayon colored Bon Bons (in my photos) but you can also use Koigu new mini skeins or stash yarn.
I thought rainbow garlands/bunting would be nice and different and give baby something to play with (the tops are sewn on securely, of course.)
