Sheldon Blanket and Markus

Please describe and tell us about your baby blanket.


This blanket was made for my friend's baby named Markus.


What yarn and needles did you use and where did you get them? Why did you pick this yarn?

Shine Worsted Weight from Knit Picks - bachelor button, cream, green apple and grass


Tell us more about your design. Was it inspired by another pattern? Why did you pick those colors?

I loved the pocket and turtle stuffed animal - such a great gift!

It was inspired by this pattern - http://www.knitpicks.com/cfpatterns/pattern_display.cfm?ID=50626220

I picked the colors as they were shown in the pattern because they suited my friend so well. In fact, Markus' room has similar colored pinstripe paint on the walls, so it was perfect!




Did you run into any problems when knitting your baby blanket? How long did it take you to knit?

No, but it was a great pattern for learning new techniques.


Anything else you'd like to share about your baby blanket or knitting in general?

The blanket was extremely well received and Markus loves to play with Sheldon's feet.
