In April 2016, I purchased 5 skeins of Plymouth Yarn Toybox Rainbow yarn while in Florida. Using my Cherish Baby Blanket pattern, I cast on this baby blanket and only knit 5 rows. I picked it up again last summer and knit about a third of the blanket. Then it sat all winter. Three weeks again, I decided it was time to complete this blanket and add it to my collection of finished items that are ready when I need a gift. I really dislike deadline knitting and so I knit items and keep them until I need a gift, then go shopping in my own home.
Here’s Hello Baby! I used 3 skeins of yarn, approximately 720 yards. This yarn is acrylic and is machine wash and dry making it ideal for baby.
This knitting pattern is a 20 row repeat that is easy to track by sight. It has a garter stitch border. This is the third blanket that I’ve knit using this pattern and the first time that I used a striping yarn. The colors worked out nicely. Here’s a close up of the stitch pattern.
The Cherish Baby Blanket pattern is written for worsted weight yarn with one version using one strand and size 8 knitting needles and the other using two strands of worsted weight held together on Size 13 needles.
I have 2 skeins of this lovely yarn left to add to my stash.
Now to move on to one of my other unfinished projects. Right now, I have too many projects started!
