Rose Petals

After finishing Falling Colors, I started Rose Petals. This first section of a West Coast Oddball Baby Blanket was knit on size 8 needles, using Caron Simply Soft (Mauve). I used a Single Chevron stitch.

I've requested other knitters use pink, cream, or mauve yarns to complete this blanket.

Note: Trust me, this blanket is on a circular needle. It is not visible in this close-up of the stitch pattern. The Oddball group owns the needles and they travel with the blanket. The last knitter on a blanket casts off and then starts a new blanket on the empty needles.

All Rose Petals needs now is a border. 


  1. I've always loved the chevron stitch. This should be a pretty blanket in those colors.

  2. Um, Nancy -- you're missing the needles. I guess that must mean you send them out without the needles? Very pretty little oddball beginning.

  3. Oh Nancy, that is beautiful!!!! I love the way the color and the pattern go together!!

  4. That's a beautiful stitch pattern for a blanket. I'm always amazed at the number of blankets you work on :) Will you see the finished blanket?
