I created this baby blanket for a friend’s first baby. I used Bernat Baby Sport, which conveniently comes in a large skein big enough for the project. I decided to use a pattern named “Cable Chevron” out of the book Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein. I knit in the pattern as written for half of the blanket and then created a flat area for embroidery in the middle for about 2 inches and then finished the rest of the blanket in reverse order to mirror the pattern from the middle. I embroidered some small flowers and the baby’s name in the middle for the final touch.
