Coloured Chevrons

I finished the lovely chevron baby blanket offered on 
I actually finished it about two weeks ago now but I'm playing catch-up with everything at the moment.


The pattern recommendation was for aran weight yarn but the choice of colours in cotton aran was very limited in my local shop so i knitted mine in DK Rico 100% cotton, cast on more stitches and used 5mm needles.


I'm so happy with how it turned out :-)
And the pattern was so simple, not a purl stitch in sight!

I used 7 different colours but kept that lovely silver grey in the middle and repeated the white and the cream on either side.



The result Is still quite chunky and heavy even with using DK yarn and it's a perfect size for a  pram / stroller blanket :-)

I'm totally in love with this trendy baby blanket, and i can see me knitting more of them:-)

Until next time xx

Gorgeous blanket! I love the colours you've used. My mum just knit a blanket for a friend of mine who had a baby girl last week. She used Sirdar whispers DK and it is super soft. What's even better is that the wool was on offer in Hobbycraft for 99p a ball! :0)
