Gemma is a sweet and stylish geometric baby blanket made in chunky Stone Washed XL. I named her Gemma after the diamond shapes, but coincidentally, all of the colors of Stone Washed are named for gemstones. It was meant to be! If you need a fast baby blanket, one option is to use thicker yarn, but the end result can be a boxy and bulky piece. By mixing thick motifs with thinner yarn for the join and border, you can turn a good blanket into a great blanket. Try this pattern for your next gifty make! – Rachele C.
