Christmas Knitting 2014

For Christmas in 2014 we started a new extending family tradition of drawing names so that we only needed to get a gift for one person. I got my June cousin who loves The Oregon Ducks. So I made him an Oregon Ducks "O" blanket. 

I began looking online for a preexisting pattern, but i couldn't find any that fit the picture in my head so I made up my own. 

The main body of the blanket is Stockinette stitch with a boarder of Seed Stitch. I put the "O"s on using Duplicate Stitch.

As you can see in the pictures the placement of the "O"s didn't make it exactly perfect, but I think it adds character to the blanket. I like how it turned out. My Cousin seemed to like it too, at least from what I could tell.
