Baby has a blanket

*drumroll*

I have a FO to share! I never thought it would take me so long to knit a baby blanket, but I finally did! It's about time too, now that I'm almost full term (currently 36 weeks pregnant and on maternity leave, woohoo!).

Pattern: Sleeping Beauty Baby Blanket, by Diana Matthews
Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Honey Dew
Needles: US 6 - 4 mm

I had a hard time photographing it. Let's just say it looks much better in person. The colour is prettier. It was my first time working with Comfy Worsted and I really liked it even though I'm not usually a fan of cotton yarns. The pattern was well written, but as you can probably guess, the middle part (all stockinette) was a little boring.

I hope my baby likes it!

I'm sure your baby is going to love it! The stockinette part may be boring, but I think it is so pretty to look at when it's blocked! And it allows for all the attention to go for the beautiful border!

Makes me want to curl up and take a nap! Hope it has the same effect on baby! :D

Looks great! Of course, it'll look even better when there's a baby wrapped up in it :)

So sweet! And I agree with Tara, it will look even better in a few weeks!

Hello there! I'm working on the same pattern for a baby blanket. Did you found any mistakes on the written pattern? I was wondering because I am confused with Row 16 (WS), it should be P1, K1 4 times and it is the other way around K1, P1 4 times, it would be awesome if you could help me figure it out. thanks!
