Tricks with sticks

I finally finished the triple rib knit blanket for my new niece! It was sized for a crib blanket – about 24×36. Well, I doubled the yarn because I didn’t have a heavier weight to use and it ended up being closer to 36×36….ah well. Funny, it didn’t look that wide on the needles!

Closer look at the rib pattern.

I also had some leftover Velvetspun yarn from a bunny blanket I made a year ago, so I whipped up a little hat for my new nephew as well. Belden wasn’t a very cooperative model, though.
