Store Display Project – Giggles Baby Blanket

I finally finished the Giggles Baby Blanket that I did on my bulky knitting machine!

I chose 3 colours – 2 variegated and two balls of each of two solid colours and cast on the length of my machine (200 – odd stitches) and just knitted until I ran out of each ball. I cast-off and had some pink left so I picked up stitches along the border on a 6.5mm pair of Denise circulars with a really long, extended cable. I increased at the corners – which are a bit too wavy – and hand-knitted about 6 rows.

Overall, the Giggles yarn is very stretchy so if I did it again, I wouldn’t do the border. The border is too short for the sides, so the blanket bunches up in the middle. On the plus side, the yarn produces a really nice double-sided fabric which is very soft and cuddly for a baby. And if you have a bulky knitting machine, this yarn goes through it like a dream – I was actually quite surprised at how well it turned out.

Project Rating: ***

A good one for beginners – only knit stitch is required. Could easily be made with 6 balls of Giggles.
