Item details

Purchaser will receive a PDF instant download of a knitting pattern for this 28" x 32" two-color baby blanket. The blanket is created in one piece working back and forth on circular needle in Stockinette stitch starting at the lower edge. A provisional cast-on is used so that stitches can be reused later for a tidy bottom edge. A mitered border is added one side at a time, worked in garter stitch, and seamed at the corners. There are never more than 5 stitches between color changes so there are no long floats on the back that could get tangled (see picture) therefore no backing is needed. The lines and circles intersect in perfect symmetry which makes for easy blocking.

The pattern is written for intermediate knitters who understand basic knitting pattern abbreviations and knitting techniques such as knit, purl, increase, bind off, Stockinette stitch, Garter stitch, and seaming. The pattern was designed using Cascade 220 superwash sport, a washable wool that is light-weight.

This blanket was an absolute joy to create. I called it Lycka (the Swedish word for Happiness) because it made me feel so happy. It reminds me of flowered sun-suits and tennis shoes I wore when I was little. It was inspired, in part by a print on some dinner napkins I purchased for a housewarming (see picture).

A perfect gift for newborns, baby showers, or nursery décor. I hope you love knitting and giving Lycka as much as I enjoyed designing it.
