Satin needed for Baby Blanket

ILHIKER's picture

I have been making a baby blanket using Baby's First Lion Brand Yarn. It's a chunky yarn made up of 55% Acrylic and 45% Cotton. I chose to do this simple pattern that is more reminiscent of the tried-and-true washcloth pattern that has been used for hundreds of years. The parents like think simple.

Here's what I was thinking. If you look at the picture, you will see the K3, YO, K to end. I leaves a nice little hole that breaks up the lines and creates a nice border. I was thinking that it would also make a great place to weave washable acrylic satin ribbon. The recipient of the blanket will be a little girl, so I was thinking of weaving pink or yellow ribbon through the holes with ties at each corner

My question to all of you guys it...Does anyone know where I can get really good satin ribbon that is washable.

I have attached the first 103 rows so you can see what I am talking about.

Thanks for suggestions. If you think that satin is the wrong way to go, please let me know that too and what you feel is a better choice.

Thanks guys.

Very nice. The idea of adding

Very nice. The idea of adding ribbon to personalize it is a great one. I'll have to keep that in mind for future projects.

Hi Joe,
I'll take a picture of it when I'm done. I'm halfway there now, so I will start my decreasing tomorrow. Then the ribbon. I think it will look nice.

EASY! ...most available satin

EASY!
...most available satin ribbon is polyester...and completely washable and sturdy...perfect for lacing the blanket. You can find it at any good fabric store, JoAnnes, craft stores.
