Shaimani’s Blanket

Lately I find myself knitting more baby things than expected. My friends are popping out babies left and right.

This particular blanket is dedicated to one of my bestest buddies. I do not need to tell her who she is. She knows how much her friendship means to me and how much I text her when I can’t find her online for my daily dose of BFF! Here’s to a healthy and wonderful baby, my friend. I love you, girl.

Now don’t let the fact that the sample shown here is a blanket deter you from making a scarf or shawl out of this stitch pattern. I think it would make a beautiful stole! Just cast on any multiple of 15 stitches plus 11 and follow the pattern.

I would say this pattern is intermediate since it has cables and lace. The pattern includes written instructions and a chart. You can use either.

  1. I love that wandering cable–I’ve never seen anything like that.

    The worst part of these baby booms is when you’re done with all that knitting and you can’t think of anything to knit for yourself!
