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 have been wanting to knit this blanket for a long time, I just don’t know anyone having a baby at the moment! I would go for: Corn, Cinnamon, Aqua, Robin Egg and Marine. Suitable for babies and adults!

  • Eibhin Butler: September 16, 2020

    Stone, Robin egg, light pink, mauve and leaf! Divine ❤️

  • Elana: September 16, 2020

    Hmmm. They’re really all so pretty!

    Ecru, Sky, Robin’s Egg, Mauve, and Fuschia.

  • Nicola: September 16, 2020

    I would love to win the wool for this Chevron blanket – I would chose Robin egg, Duck egg, Mauve, Silver and Mallard. <3 :-)

  • Maruja: September 16, 2020

    In Spain it’s very hot this days, so I’d choose colours that make me feel at the seaside:
    02- Ecru
    03- Marine
    04- Sky
    17- Aqua


  • denise: September 16, 2020

  • Kirsten: September 16, 2020

    Oh this is way to much FUN! I’m going to be a Gran soon and I’ve been going wild over the endless Patterns, Yarns and Colours. This morning when I opened my web page I couldn’t believe it, “This is Knit” was the very first one sitting there and Pow! this wonderful Baby Blanket! I guess I really don’t have to say more, so I’ll get to the Colour Combo I want to do:

    I love the “MIA” yarn by Debbie Bliss. I have come to really like the comfort and the wear and tare of the 50% wool/50% Cotton yarns. I think they are perfect for babies and children: In this Order: ( I have used 6 Colours. I just didn’t like the balance with out the extra colour) Navy, Peach, Cinnamon, Fuchsia, Mauve and Sky

    Well, Hope Ya’ll like it and I know there will be many delicious colour combinations. I can hardly wait to see some knit up. GOOD LUCK YA"LL!

  • Sandra Hugie: September 16, 2020

    My choice would be Ecru, Citrus, buttermilk, Petal, and silver.

  • Elizabeth: September 16, 2020

    I’m calling the combo “garden afternoon:” Sky, Rose, Citrus, Buttermilk, Stone

  • Meg: September 16, 2020

    First thoughts are for Sky, Robin Egg, Fuchsia, Stone and Mallard but could probably change my mind the next time I look!

  • Jaclyn Allen: September 16, 2020

    I got one: Robin Egg, Ecru, Citrus, White, Duck. I just found out yesterday that my uncle and his wife are expecting their first baby! It’s too early to know whether it’s a boy or girl yet, so I have to go gender neutral until further notice.

  • Geraldine: September 16, 2020

    I would use White Mauve Citrus Buttermilk and Peach.

  • Louise: September 16, 2020

    I think fuchsia, rose, light pink, buttermilk and petal would be beautiful!

  • Angela: September 16, 2020

    I would use red white grey and blue

  • Jen Wilson: September 16, 2020

    I would use white, duck, sky, mauve & light pink. That way it could be used for a girl or a boy. I’m currently knitting a baby blanket and I’m always looking for patterns to continue to introduce me to new techniques. Will definitely try this one!

  • Noreen Russell: September 16, 2020

    My choice would be as follows
    19 Buttermilk
    01 White
    06 Duck
    22 Silver
    03 Marine

  • Jacqueline Cosgrove: September 16, 2020

    Aqua, Petal, Ecru, Robin, Fuchsia.
    Thanks Jacqueline ☺

  • Madeline: September 16, 2020

    I would use rose and citrus – simple and bright!

  • Hilary: September 16, 2020
