Learning new techniques- Colourful wedges baby blanket

When we found out during 2019 that a new baby nephew was on the way we were very excited. As usual, I searched for some cool patterns to make for the new arrival. After a few hours of searching, I found two I really liked, and this is one of them. The colourful wedges baby blanket from Purl Soho: https://www.purlsoho.com/create/2016/06/06/colorful-wedges-baby-blanket/

This blanket uses garter stitch and wrapped short rows to great effect. I ordered Bendigo Wool Mills Imperial 8Ply for this project, it is a blend of wool, alpaca and silk. It has a lovely drape and beautiful muted colours, perfect in my mind for a modern baby blanket.

With the recent very hot weather I was able to organise my yarn stash and begin the blanket. I decided to work the alternate wedges in grey, so this blanket doesn’t just have to be a baby blanket. The second blanket pattern I liked is also in progress, and I will share that next time.

You may recognise the colours, as I have used the same yarn to make a crocheted dress for my niece…which is also nearly finished.

What kinds of things do you make for new arrivals?

Until next time, happy crafting
