WIP: Chevron baby blanket

I have crazy knitting plans!
A long knitted skirt, a dress, a top. All that for me.
I have the yarn and the patterns.
A skirt for my mum. I have half the yarn needed and waiting for the rest to come but I have the pattern.
Also (drumroll here) all of the patterns are mine!
I don’t think I’ll have the time to write them down any time soon and have actual patterns for anyone interested, but when things calm down I’ll do my best 🙂

But there is also a baby on its way. My best friend’s first.
My baby knitting is a little delayed by the excuse that we don’t know yet if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl.
Stupid excuse since I  know I’ll make everything neutral-gender.

I started a baby blanket hoping that it will be finished before the weather gets very hot.
You all must know my love for stripes by now.
But do you know that is better than stripes?
Chevron!
I just love chevron.
The pattern is very simple and using a 5mm crochet hook makes the blanket fly off my hands.

I chose white, grey and beige acrilic yarns for easy washing.
I know my friend will like the colors since her house is decorated in grey and beige.

I don’t know if it’s just me but I find blankets…. healing!
Having a hook and yarn and ending up with a blanket, is soothing for my soul. I feel grateful and covered by love as the blanket grows and starts covering me.
Have you ever felt that?

Last but not least, thank you so much for the comments on our house.
You put a big smile on my and F’s face.
You all are the best!

  1. I love the colours you have chosen for the blanket! I love making blankets too, especially ripple or stripes that don’t involve a marathon of joining at the end.

  2. the colours you chose are so perfect….and i really can relate to that cozy, nesting feeling you talk about while knitting a blanket—probably the reason that it seems as if I always have one started!!! Lovely choice. Lucky friend.

  3. I too love a good chevron – that’s going to be one pretty blanket, and one very cozy, happy baby 🙂 I agree with knitting being soothing for the soul, I find it very relaxing too, (when it all goes to plan that is haha) I’m looking forward to seeing your upcoming projects – especially the knitted dress! x
