Chevron Baby Blanket

I suppose that if I was the very best Nana in the world, I'd give Parcheesi to Zim; instead, we'll snuggle under it together at my house.

The overall size is 28" x 38" -- basically "stroller" size. It's shown atop my queen-size bed.

I knit an entire skein each of Dragonfly (dark teal), Duckling (yellow), and Robin's Egg (light teal) to begin; I then knit up another skein of both Duckling and Robin's Egg in a random stripe pattern; finishing with another skein of Dragonfly -- two skeins of each color.

I've already washed it and dried it -- using cold water and the Permanent Press cycle in my front-loading washer, and medium-low heat in the dryer. It softened up a little and even has a little bit of halo.

 Beanie Baby giraffe for scale. And because he's my favorite.

That is so beautiful, Vicki. You've created an heirloom!

Zim is going to be a warm, happy baby cuddled up in g-ma's hugs and love. Beautiful!!

That is lovely! Lucky baby!

What a beautiful blanket - I love it! Babies can never have too many blankets. I know that several people made blankets for my daughter when she was a baby. We still have them, and I cherish each one because someone took the time to think of her & to make something for her (I was not yet a knitter when I had my daughter).

No, there should be a special blankie at Grandma's house just for snuggling wee people. And with so much color in Parcheesi think of the games and stories you two will be able to invent whilst under it. Today's piece is lovely, too. Always admire your color sense.

oh I LOVE this blanket...and the giraffe. he's definitely my favorite too!

Most beautiful and the colors, oh the colors! Excellent job as usual.

LOVE it!! Just exquisite.
