The Details

Pattern: Big Bad Baby Blanket
Designer: Lisa Shobhana Mason
Size: 28″ x 28″
Needles: Size 9 (5.5mm) needles
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Fine, shown in Calypso #7806 (A), Anemone #7805 (B), Snorkel #7809 (C), and Hippo #7823 (D)
This pattern is in Stitch ‘N Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook
Special Note: The ombre effect is very simple to work. The Big Bad Baby Blanket is worked with two strands of Spud & Chloë Fine held together throughout. For the first section hold color A with Color A. Section 2 is color A held with B, section 3 is color B held with color B. Section 4 is color B with color C, and section 5 is color C held with color C. Section 6 is color C held with color D, and lastly you work section 7, color D held with color D. This is an interesting technique that can be used with as few or as many colors as you would like for the ombre look.
