Purchaser will receive a PDF instant download of a knitting pattern for this 29" square, two-color DK-weight baby blanket with I-cord edging. Blanket features squirrel, bunny, and chick motifs along with stripes and zig-zags. It is knit flat on circular needles working back and forth in stockinette stitch following a chart. I-cord edging is applied using double-pointed needles. The pattern recommends backing the blanket with fabric and provides instructions for attaching backing.
Pattern is written for Intermediate level knitters who understand basic knitting pattern abbreviations and knitting techniques such as cast on, knit, SSK, purl, bind off, Stockinette stitch, and I-cord.
One of my favorite charities to knit for is Bundles of Love (http://www.bundlesoflove.org/), a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that partners with community service agencies to assist Minnesota families in need by providing handmade baby clothing, bedding and basic care items for their newborns. This blanket was designed with those newborns in mind. I wanted to create a gender-neutral blanket, no bigger than 30" square with a timeless motif. The animal shapes combined with zig-zags and stripes were inspired by a child's toy from the mid 1900's. The pattern was designed using Perfection DK, a mostly acrylic blend DK weight yarn which is washable yet soft and comes in a wide variety of colors. The squirrel motif is also found on our Motif Infant Cardigan which is knit from the same yarn along with a matching bonnet...a beautiful compliment for anyone who wants to make a matching layette.
