Treasured Heirloom Baby Blanket Reviewed by Kevin Allen on 2014-04-05 *****
Love, love, love this pattern. It was challenging to complete...but I did. I made a beautiful baby blanket for my dear friend's first grandchild.

Great pattern...just wish I had seen the suggestions made by other reviewers as it was lopsided both times I made it. Even blocking didn't work. Thankfully the people I made them for were so delighted with it being homemade, they didn't care either were lopsided!

I made this blanket with LB Collection Baby Alpaca instead of cashmere for a co-worker's baby shower. At the halfway point it still seemed small so I added another complete patten repeat before decreasing. I know my tension is a little uneven & would not be quite square so I blocked really well & added a ribbon edging by threading a cross grain ribbon through the end row YOs. I tacked it down at the corners & along the sides. My co-worker loved it! The yarn was so soft yet more affordable than the LB Cashmere, I have ordered several more skeins of LB Baby Alpaca to just have for when another special project comes up. Thank you for the great free patterns & new luxury yarns!!!

This is a beautiful pattern, but the finished size is very small. I added two balls of yarn and made it bigger. It was the hit of the baby shower, and my niece used it in the newborn photos and to swaddle the baby.

The first half of the blanket came out very nice and even, but the second half came out very different, doesn't lay flat, the edges are a bit wavy. Although it looks pretty, the blanket is completely lopsided. Looks more like a diamond then a square. The garter inc row - K1, yo, k to end - looks very different then the garter dec row - K1, yo, K3tog.

Thanks, Katie Weikle, for your tip on the lace row. Following your suggestion, it works up perfectly! I love the diagonal blankets, and the addition of the lace panel just mixes it up a bit.
Thanks, Lionbrand!

This was an easy and straight forward pattern. I added an extra set of garter panels to the blanket to make it a bit bigger. I used the lace modification that was posted by another reviewer: k1 yo k1 *k2 yo k2tog* k3.

I used Lion Brand Pound of Love and a #9 needle. There is enough yarn left to make another one.
I used Katie Weikle's tip about adding an extra knit stitch and liked the way it turned out.
My knitting group knits for charity, and this will be welcome at our baby clinic. Don't be intimidated by the "experienced" level. It's quite straight forward.

The only thing I would change is when doing the lace row I would k1 yo k1 *k2 yo k2tog* k3. The second k1 is added so you don't end up with a lace hole right on the edge of the blanket-it makes it more symmetrical too.

Treasured Heirloom Baby Blanket Reviewed by Gina Lawless on 2011-04-08 ****

I just started this and am hoping it will come out square...That is always a problem for me with these diagonal blankets.

Don't have a problem with the count though. It appears to be correct.
