Debbie Bliss Running Stitch Blanket


Who doesn't love Debbie Bliss? This book has loads of great patterns for the beginner and beyond. I think the colors are perfect for a boy or girl and modern moms love shades of grey right now.
This is not a quick knit as you are knitting two blankets separately then stitching them together. If you know how to do double knitting, this is the perfect project. YouTube will have some videos for you or you can find a class for that  on Craftsy, just click on the Online Classes at the top of the page.

For this squishy goodness, I used worsted weight (4) yarn in two shades of grey and a cream and dark grey for the running stitch.  3 skeins Caron Simply Soft Charcoal Heather 3 skeins silver.  You can use scrap yarn for the running stitch.

Great project for car trips or tv watching.  A crocheted edge would look really sweet.  You can find Debbie Bliss books on Amazon.com or you fav book store!

Best,
Sheila
