I made this blanket for my best friend's baby. She's due in May and I wanted to make a personalised gift, something none else would give her! It's the first time I knit something that big, until now the only things I did were scarves and squares. It's not perfect and has a lot of irregularities, I hope she won't be too disappointed...



The pattern comes from a French magazine (Tricot facile) and is fairly simple to make. I used double yarn for everything.
I first knitted 6 moss stich plain squares (one in each color: blue, pink, purple, green, orange, beige).
Then I knitted 6 jersey stitch striped squares. The pattern alternates 3 white rows and 3 colored rows.
I sewed the 12 squares then made a border in garter stitch.







Thanks for looking! Smiley

I really like the combination of colors and neutrals!  What kind of yarn did you use?

I'm very new with yarn but I believe it's a 6 st/inch wool/acrylic/polyamid mix. I used 2 strands and US size 8 needles.
