New Videos - USM Baby Blanket

This is a short-rowed swirl blanket, and I do prefer my regular sectioned Circular Swirl Baby Blanket. This one is adapted to be made on the Ultimate Sweater Machine.  This is faster than the sectioned blanket and a great choice for charity blankets, especially blankets for newborns.  It takes surprisingly little yarn.  

I came up with an interesting and practical edging for the USM and put that around the blanket.  Since the blanket is lavender and white, it was nice to have an edging that has both colors.

I also made this with a different yarn and put a crochet edging around it.


  1. Hello Diana compliments six talented
    I hope you come soon Enchanted Scraps ties to make the edges
    thanks hello happy new year

  2. The first video is only 1:28 in time. It cuts off just as you say what keyplate you are using.

  3. Love that new edging idea. I just found out in 4 months a new baby is coming to the family. I'll have to try the new edging on a blanket.

  4. Hello Diana,
    thank you so much for your very interesting and informative videos.

    And a happy new year for you and your family.

  6. Thank you Diana!
    With three new babies to knit for, I appreciate your videos. I am heading to Hobby Lobby this evening to purchase yarn for this project!!

  7. Just finished this blanket! I love it! It wasn't perfect, as I am new to the USM, but it looks really good for a practice blanket! Thanks for the great videos! Can't wait to try again!

  8. Thank you,Diana! I hate using my USM, preferring my Brother machines, but watching your videos makes me think I should take it back out of the box, and give it a go with some simple projects.
