Finally finished this rainbow blankie just in time for a visit with cousins who have a lovely squishy adorable new baby!
I’m pleased with how this new-to-me stitch turned out, the edges are VERY straight!
It’s Lion Brand Mandala in Chimera, the colours are so great.
Here it is with a card my nephew made, lol. Kids are weird.
I love the colors and the gradation! I also like how the bands of color are all varying sizes. I just keep going back and looking at that second picture, it holds so much visual interest for me.
It is really cool how the variegation is randow so the stripes do all sorts of things, I quite like that too. I made a virus shawl with this same yarn once, very pretty in that stitch.
Beautiful! And love the card addition lol!
Love how this came out! And that you got it finished, I know you and the blanket have been companions for a long time. Well done!
ETA: I still need to learn the C2C method. It is so nice looking and I’ve been putting it off too long.
Squishy babes are the best!
So pretty! What stitch is it? I love the card, too!
It’s corner 2 corner, just basic doubles with a twist. Easy!
It may just be a basic stitch, but the end result is so elegant. It really shows off that variegated yarn nicely, too. Nice work!
Oh, wow! Didn’t realize that “corner to corner” WAS the stitch! I crochet, but have never tried that one. It really does look fabulous with such even edges, and the colors are luscious!
Oh, thats so beautiful! Love the colours !
I crochet too, but never tried C2C stich ( yet) this made me tempted to try .
I love the colors you chose.
Had to go back and look again. This yarn is so beautiful!
But let me see if i understood this
Lion Brand Mandala in Chimera, right? Mandala in chimera is the name of this exact colour? I would dislike it if i ordered online and got it wrong. I wish we had Lion Brand here too.
Colors are so pretty and that stitch is incredible. I don’t so anything yarn but it looks impressive.
That’s correct! Where in the world are you, Ms Lime?
