Crayon Box

Monday afternoon, I started knitting an Oddball Baby Blanket, using scraps of Caron Simply Soft. The blanket is named Crayon Box since the colors do not coordinate at all.

I am knitting three ridges of garter stitch in a soft beige between each color to break up the contrast and to give the blanket more of a planned appearance. The color strips are not the same size because I am using scraps.

Each strip has a different stitch, with the completed sections as follows:

Lime Green - British Moss stitch
Wedgewood Blue - Andalusian stitch
Green - Checks and Ridges stitch
Yellow - Purled Ladders stitch
Sand/Bone - Garter stitch

Changing colors is motivating me to keep knitting, and I am pleased with the progress.

  3. Nancy, that's lovely. How clever to coordinate it by bordering each stripe with the beige yarn. I'll have to remember that the next time I'm knitting something out of scraps.
