Knit Applique Baby Blanket (finished)

I took inspiration from the Alabama Stitch Book to make this blanket for my dear friend Charee.

Check it out:

Charee picked the colors, I picked the circles because I love me some spots.

The back side

I used both applique and reverse applique, both with raw edges, and I decided to include exposed knots

Actually, this was loads of fun to make, it all went down very fast.

Here it is all wrapped up ready for a sweet baby boy. I always try to include a tag which tells the new owner how to care for their handmade item

if you have a chance to pick up the Alabama Stitch Book, definitely do, it's very unique and inspirational.
