Sophie’s Blanket

I finished the blanket for the new baby this week. I used the OpArt pattern from Knitty. I did make a few changes. One is that I knitted the blanket in stockinette instead of garter stitch. Since I did this, it was curling a bit at the edges, so I added a reverse single crochet edge to hopefully cut down on the curling. I haven’t washed it yet, so these photos are of the blanket straight off the needles. I hope our new little girl likes the pattern as much as I do. 🙂
