Nina’s Blanket

This striking unisex blanket is the perfect project for the special baby in your life. Plush ribbed borders provide the perfect backdrop for the graphic herringbone pattern that is worked in a simple slip-stitch pattern using only one color at a time. Choose two solid colors to highlight the modern feel of this blanket.

The bottom border, body, and top border of the blanket are worked flat in one piece in a DK-weight yarn. Each of the side borders are then picked up and knit. The blanket is shown in the carriage blanket size and the pattern also includes a lap throw size. To make a larger blanket, simply add additional repeats of the herringbone pattern and work until the blanket is your desired length.
