Modification Monday: Til lilleføykja Blanket



Original Pattern: Perianth

Knitter Extraordinaire: Ann (Ravelry ID, Blog)

Mods: Used the charted mitten design as a starting point for  the baby blanket, knit in the round and steeked. Project page with lots of great photos can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: The lovely design of the mittens is very pretty, but once Ann blew it up and did an entire blanket of it,  I was blown away! The effect is like being in a snowstorm of flowers, and the contrasting border (check out the extra attention to detail of the yellow/green border she added on as well) is flawless. I'm totally in love with it!

Thank you for writing about my blanket. I am very happy about the end result though I will at a later time report on how it worked over time not using a fabric lining for the back side.

That pattern and blanket are absolutely stunning! Wonder if I can talk the DH into another baby so I can knit this.....? What the heck, maybe I'll just knit it for myself.

I've never considered moving a fair aisle pattern like that from something small and moving it to a blanket. This was super smart! I love how it looks and you won't see that anywhere else! Excellent job.
