My Favourite Baby Blanket

In the few years since I was regularly posting last, I seem to have hit the stage in life where EVERYONE around me is having babies. So, I’ve been making lots and lots of baby blankets. Through a whole lot of trial and error, I’ve found one particular pattern that I really love, and is versatile enough to be made for any baby, whether it needs to be for a boy, girl or made gender neutral. You can add any edging you like, and the pattern itself is a simple repeat but looks stunning. I usually make it in an 8ply yarn using a 4mm hook, but my mum recently made one big enough for a single bed using 8 ply and a 5.5mm hook and it looks just as lovely. It looks just as nice in stripes as in a single colour, and works up quite quickly.

Here’s a link to the pattern.

These are a couple of pictures of the most recent one of these blankets I made (again taken from the phone by an unskilled photographer – me!).



I just LOVE the edging on this version of the blanket. I’ll be including a link to the free pattern in an upcoming post featuring some of my favourite blanket edges!
