Baby Chalice Blanket

We have several babies coming on Jim's side of the family so I thought I'd get a start on some baby blankets.  Baby blankets are great to knit as there is no shaping involved  and are an easy straight forward knit.  The Baby Chalice blanket is a great pattern I knit using three skeins of Berroco Vintage

This is the second time I've used Berroco Vintage and I love knitting with it.   I did cast on twenty extra stitches for a total of 103 to make the blanket a little larger.  The finished size was 28 x 34.

I can also attest to the fact that Vintage is wonderful after going through the washing machine.  I managed to spill coffee on the blanket 5 rows before finishing knitting.  I bound off and put the blanket in the washing machine and you are seeing the finished result.
