Graduated Stripe Buggy Blanket

Another new baby in the 'hood….a boy.  
Seems that there are lots of boys being born round here at the moment. 
Means only one thing....

...yep, another blanket.  

This time I had hardily any time to whip one up. 
Wait.... I really shouldn't say that - handmade items are NEVER 'just whipped up'. 

So a nice simple stitch in an easy to do and contemporary graduated stripe. This can be made in any DK yarn. I used Stylecraft Life DK in classic, but not traditional baby colours. It is one of my favourite wool mix yarns and has a real quality soft feel. What's more it washes and wears well and doesn't break the bank. 

 Cream, Fern and Blue Haze - Perfect for a boy ….or a girl.

This is a great project for beginners.
I've made an easy to follow pattern with a chart for those more visually inclined, plus a guide to the graduated stripe pattern.
