I had an interesting time making this blanket. I was working an loom knitting and had just taught myself how to crochet and was still unsure on how to make a mixed work piece. I wound up compromising with myself and made this blanket in a basket weave and ladder pattern, both knit, and bordered it with a chain and bar type of border, crocheted.
Putting this blanket together was a bit difficult. I couldn’t get it to line up right and wound up having to take it out two or three times. The border helped even out the finished look of this blanket and added a great space to be able attach little toys and baby paraphernalia (ie. pacifiers or teething rings).
