Baby Sophie's Blanket


So, this is my second knitting attempt. As you can see I stayed with the basic garter stitch blocks, but added a little embellishment with the knitted applique hearts. I must say, being a girly girl myself I totally love this blanket!

I love this blanket too. Did you sew the hearts on or knit them in between each block?

Thank you! I made the hearts separately and then sewed each one on. It gave the blanket a little texture and added dimension, while still being soft on babies crawling around. I'm so glad you liked it! :-)

This blanket could not be more perfect for such a sweet little girl. :)
