This is the seventh baby blanket I’ve made this year. I used Bernat Baby Sport yarn, and my blanket came out very light and airy. I think it’s perfect for babies born in summer as it is not as warm as blankets made with worsted yarn.
The edging is quite simple; it’s only one round of single crochets. The reason for that is that I didn’t have enough yarn to make a fancier edging. This blanket took exactly one ball of yarn (892 yds/8.5 oz), and I only had a few yards of yarn left.
But I think even with a simple border, the lacy stitch and variegated yarn make this blanket quite lovely.
The stitch pattern is very easy and quick to work. In fact, I made this baby blanket in only three days.
