Miss Babs Summer 2017: Little Dearest Baby Blanket

Last month, I was swamped with getting ready for The National Needlearts Association Summer 2017 Show in Columbus OH. I will save that topic for my next blog post. The week before the show, Miss Babs launched their baby patterns in their Summer 2017 Collection.

I designed a baby blanket called Little Dearest with 2 skeins of Yowza. The colorway is called Deer Moss and it's a neutral color, perfect for either a boy or girl.
Little Dearest is a classic diagonally knit baby blanket that will be loved by babies and parents alike. It is knit with a 100% superwash merino wool which will make this a very warm and snuggly blanket. The alternating sections of Garter and Ridge Stitch create a pleasing texture that will be perfect for a baby boy or girl.
I am thrilled with the response to my new blanket design. I love knitting blankets, but I also know how tedious it can get. That is one of the reasons why I designed it diagonally. As you knit, you increase for half the blanket and then decrease for the other half. It makes it feel like less work. You can purchase the pattern HERE and purchase the yarn from Miss Babs online or at her retail shows.

What a sweet little blanket! I'll add it to my favorites on Ravelry until the time that I need it! Thanks!

This is such a sweet blanket. I have my 2 skeins of Yowza and am excited to begin this projecy. But, before I begin, I do have a question. In the first section, the pattern calls for 14 repeatsm (28 nrows)n of the garter section; however, in the 2nd section - the decrease rows, the pattern calls for only 5 repeats or m10m rows of garter stitch. is this ccorrect? Won't this make the 2 sides of the blanket look unbalanced?

I'd really appreciate it if you could clarify this before I begin my Little Darling Blanket.

Thanks so much!
