Here’s a lovely collection of blankets to knit with many suitable for beginners. These make a great homemade gift for baby that’s sure to be treasured for years, enjoy!
Sunny : Of course this can be made in any color you please, but bright yellow brings an extra spark of joy and light.
Hip Hop : Bunnies may be made using the intarsia method, or background yarn may be stranded behind bunny motif catching every other stitch for added strength and to avoid creating loops.
Blocks : Finished Measurements: 33×45 inches (crib size).
Hoodie : This is cute, cool, and machine-washable, making it a welcome gift for hot and sticky summer newborns.
Luca Cabled : Finished Size: approx. 24 inches x 36 inches.
Garter Rib : Ideal for beginners, finished size: 30″x32″. Available via pdf download.
Quilted Entrelac : Beautiful (and unique) design. Recommended to use circular needles. Includes directions for backing and binding.
Oh So Soft : Finished size approximately 32 x 42 inches. This is made holding two strands of yarn at the same time – one white and one “twinkle”. The border is done is seed stitch. The rest is done in stockinette stitch with 4 garter and eyelet strips spaced throughout.
Breezy : This one is airy, stretchy and perfect for wrapping.
Gingham Check : Cozy in a gingham check with a bold garter border. Worked on circulars, finished size approximately 46″ wide by 32″ long (including border).
Lamb Lovey : Sure to be a cherished treasure for years, this is worked on DPNs and measures 14 1/2″ from top of head to bottom.
Reversible & Cabled : I like the seed stitch border on this! Requires approximately 800 yards of worsted weight yarn.
