Knitting Project: A Soft & Simple Baby Blanket

Jani are you reading this? You'd better not be reading this, because I'm a nerdy little yarn glutton and I HAVE to be there when someone opens one of my knitted gifts so that I can go off on all of the geeky details about the pattern, the type of yarn I used, how to launder it, etc. If the devil is in the details, then I guess that makes me the devil.

This blanket is a modified version of the Personalized Baby Blanket from Simple Knits For Cherished Babies, easily the most useful baby pattern book that I've ever purchased. I am cursed with a short attention span when it comes to knitting projects, and all of the clothes, blankets & accessories in this book are simple and easy for a lackadaisical knitter like me. After all, I'm not a knitting whiz like some people I know. ;)

Anyway, here she is, Miss Annie's blanket -

And a close-up of Annie's "A" -

In my mind, this "A" was supposed to be a lot bigger and more prominent. After getting well into it, I realized that I could have actually fit ANNE on here if I'd have been a little more caffeinated/competent in basic mathematics. But overall I'm still pretty happy with how this blankie came out. I used some luscious Rowan mohair/silk as a knit-along with a more durable cotton/acrylic as the primary yarn, for a super soft and (hopefully) durable blanket for sweet Miss Anne.


  1. Beautiful!! I love the A in the blanket. Your stitches are so even, great job!

  2. Oh I love it. love the yarn you picked. She will adore it.
