Finished: Antonio’s Blanket

Louver panes baby blanket size

There are so many things I love about living in LA. But I miss my sisters and family terribly, especially at the holidays. I have two nephews I haven’t yet had a chance to meet, although I hope to put that right very soon. 🙂

One of my great joys in life is to pick something to make when my sisters have a baby. As you might know from reading my blog for awhile, I have a preference for making baby blankets.

My choice for my newest nephew Antonio is a fun one. I went with a mix of blues with black trim, and resized this pattern into a baby blanket.

I am very wary of making blankets that have squares to seam together at the end. I once made a mitered square blanket that, no joke, took me longer to seam together and weave in ends than it did to knit the squares. The only reason I saw 100’s through to the end was because most of the squares are picked up and knit, no seaming, so it wasn’t quite so bad.

But back to this one, the seaming was very simple, and the squares themselves are big enough that it was actually fun putting it together sort of like a puzzle. I will not make a blanket with tiny mitered squares again, but I wouldn’t mind doing a full size version of this one for our home.
