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.)

Final measurement: 25X22”
Easily made wider and longer.

Materials: US 6, 8 needles for blanket, US 5 for triangles.
US 7 or 8 dpns for i-cord
750 yards of worsted weight yarn plus 40 yards for i-cord.

Alternate yarns:

4 skeins Cascade 220 plus scrap and 50 yards alt. color for i-cord.

3 skeins Madelinetosh Vintage or DK plus scrap yarn for triangles and 50 yards for i-cord.

Special techniques - icord.
