Yankee Doodle Dandy

Yankee Doodle Dandy
Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket
started August 2013
This patriotic blanket was probably one of the first blankets to be completed in less than an month. It travelled to six different knitters in Nebraska, Oregon, Ohio, Texas, Idaho, and Wyoming and was off the needles in less than 30 days. An amazing feat when you consider that some blankets take nearly a year to reach this stage.


Yarn: Caron Simply Soft (Red)
Needles: size 8
Stitch count: 126
Stitch used for my section: Mirror Triangles (8 stitch repeat)

Update: November 10, 2013

  4. You gals really got after it. Nice blanket. I really like the mirror triangle stitch. I can see how this project allows one to research stitching patterns and try out some you may not use otherwise. Nice work!

  5. Considering the distance and time it takes to mail stuff it's amazing this was done in a month. Like your section. That's a neat stitch.
