The Pioneer Baby Blanket

Did anyone else fall in love with the Pioneer Woman's new kitchen collection that came to Walmart this last year? I know I sure did! What did me in were the colors. How could you not love all of those bright reds and oranges and yellows? Plus, the turquoise! You can't forget the turquoise!

My sister-in-law is due any day now with her fourth child; a little girl! Her color requests were red and turquoise and after throwing in a little white and a little ruffle, out came the design for the Pioneer Baby Blanket. On a side note, I really wanted to name it The Pioneer Baby Baby Blanket but who puts two babies in a title? How could I not name it after the Pioneer Woman with those colors and stitches?

Speaking of stitches, this blanket is worked completely with cluster stitches, with the exception of a chain here and there. You know what that means? It works up really quickly and is super thick and squishy - perfect for the cold months ahead!

If you work this pattern up, I'd love to see it! Tag me on Instagram with a @9603designco or send me an e-mail. I'd also like to let you know that this pattern has not been tested. So, if anything does not make sense or doesn't belong, please let me know! I hope you enjoy this just as much as I did!
