Thérèse's knitting

 

Polka Dot Baby Blanket

Designer: me
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in roasted coffee, chamois, rue, and coral sunset 
Completed: October, 2004
 

This blanket is knitted in an ingenious color pattern from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns,  Four-Color Blister Stitch, which uses no stranding and no slip-stitches. I wanted the blanket to look sort of "retro", and I think it does. I ran out of the brown background color before it was big enough, so finished it off with a seed-stitch stripe of each of the other colors. After this photo was taken, the raw edges were encased in a two-sided crochet edging, so I didn't have to weave in any ends.
