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.
