Diagonal Box Stitch Baby Blanket
Posted 13 August 2006 - 03:50 PM
I've just finished a blanket for a baby boy, due in September. I used Caron's Simply Soft in three shades of blue. This is the first time I have used the diagonal box stitch pattern, found here:
It's super easy, and really a GREAT pattern if you are tired of the same old same old. (which I was!)
so.. without further ado... my blanket:
A close up of the stitches can be seen here:
Thanks for letting me share!

"Remember, you go no where by accident. Wherever you go, God is sending you. Wherever you are, God has put you there. He has a purpose in your being there. Christ, who dwells in you, has something He wants to do through you wherever you are. Believe this and Go in His Grace, Love, Power and His Peace."

I've tried three different diagonal afghans, and all three of them have turned out to have two corners that are bigger (not right angles) than the other two. Do you normally have that problem, or was this design different? I still can't figure out what I do wrong to make mine, and your blanket looks GORGEOUS. I'd love to try one, it's so inpiring! But I'm afraid...very, very afraid!

Keiyla... you simply MUST try this pattern. When the gals were talking about it 'round the 'Ville a year or so ago, I'll admit I poo-pooed it. But when I was looking for a pattern for a baby 'ghan, this came to mind. It is a bit of a challenge.. but not so much as to make you want to pull your hair out.
The tutorial gives GREAT step by step directions.
