Colorful Garter Stitch Blanket


This blanket is based on the "Moderne Baby Blanket" by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne. It's a good stash buster but it's best if all the yarn is the same brand or at least the same exact weight. It doesn't work as well if a yarn is heavier or finer than the yarn right next to it. Most of the yarn in this blanket was donated to me to use for charity. Some of the yarns were too light in color so I overdyed them. I haven't washed and blocked it yet, which I plan to do before mailing it in. This blanket was an easy, mindless TV-knitting project because it's all garter stitch. Also, very colorful.

Your color arangement and log cabinnish design result in a stunning blanket.

I like mindless garter stitch. This is certainly colorful! Some child will be so pleased to receive it.

Love your colors! Your blanket looks terrific. The garter stitch might have been mindless, but the combination of colors and shapes definitely is not.
