What's your Mia Chevron blanket?

May 08 2015 – thisisknit

This is ours, and it's given us an idea for a give-away! It's the adorable Chevron Baby Blanket made in lovely Debbie Bliss Mia. The pattern's a free download on Ravelry, and it's the easiest knit. It takes just five balls of yarn and it's one of our customers' most popular choices for new babies. There's a wonderful twenty two colours in the Mia range, and so many possible combinations. Which would you choose? Let us know, and you can win the yarn to make it! From now until midnight on Sunday May 17th, tell us in the comments section below what colours you'd use in your five-ball blanket, using the colour names from our online shop page. On Monday May 18th we'll draw a lucky winner at random, so you could be making your custom-coloured blanket in no time at all! Gentle pastels or vibrant primaries? Funky or subtle? We can't wait to see!

    I’d go nuts, go with some BRIGHT colours, the kid can’t complain! ;)

    Aqua, Corn, Fuschia, Cinnamon and Marine. Haven’t quite figured out the sequence yet, though…

    I’m a great lover of green and I’d go neutral so the blanket could be passed on – a little heirloom perhaps. I’d pick Citrus, Aqua, Leaf, Robin Egg, Ecru.

  • Ber: September 16, 2020

    Hmmm, tough decision. I like bright colours for baby though, so I think I’d pick, sky, cinnamon, ruby, corn and citrus.

  • NanPascale: September 16, 2020

    I couldn’t choose anything but my favorite colors of course: Fushia (8), mauve (7), petal (20), light pink (11) and rose (10) – girlie all the way :-)

    So hard to choose! Arg! I’m stuck between going really girly with shades of pink or gender neutral! OK, I think I’d go with Marine, Ecru, Duck, Peach, and Corn.
