Blanket, Blankie, Binky

May 3, 2012

Baby knitting season is upon us. It seems everyone the Gang knows is knitting or working on a crochet project for baby.

Who could blame them? You get to craft for an adorable, loveable little person and what could be more precious for that person than to wrap them in woolie warmth.

This is the Modern Log Cabin in Spud & Chloë Sweater. The designer, Dorian Kershner was so inspired by Spud & Chloë in her shop, Wooly Monmouth, that she created this blanket.

With ease in mind, this blanket features seed stitch, stockinette stitch, and is a great way to practice picking up stitches and utilize many fun colors from the Sweater palette.

(We heard Wooly Monmouth has kits too! If you are so inclined I bet Dorian would love it if you gave her shop a call!).

Perhaps, you would rather crochet a blankie. Making each individual motif does give blankie-making a big dose of portability.

The Trillions of Triangles afghan by Ellen Gormley in her book Go Crochet! Afghan Design Workbook is really unique. It is hooked with Spud & Chloë Sweater as well.

This motif looks both fun and interesting; since each motif is the same this would work up as a sophisticated blankie.

Last, but not least we feature another winning binky in Sweater. The Baby Babar by Donna Higgins is adorable.

Garter stitch and eyelets blend with stockinette stitch sections to create a lovely ruched effect. This binky will have a timeless feel, no matter the color palette you chose.

So, which are you making at your house? Is it a blanket, a blankie, or a binky?

Happy Knitting and Crocheting for the little ones Spud & Chloë Pals!
