This listing is for the knitting pattern, it is not a finished blanket. The pattern is written in English. The pattern is in pdf form and will be available for instant download.
The Alder blanket is a simple to knit baby blanket knitted in an Aran or worsted weight yarn.
◆ Sizes: The pattern covers two sizes of blanket,
58 x 76 cm / 23 x 30 inches and 78 x 96 cm / 31 x 38 inches.
The pattern is suitable for the beginning knitter with a little experience, or the more experienced knitter looking for a good relaxing knit.
The blanket is knitted all in one piece and the instructions are in written form, no charts are needed. The pattern is easily memorised so once set you can just knit away.
◆ Yarn: You will need approximately 673m / 736 yds of an Aran weight/worsted yarn for the smaller blanket and approx. 1143 m / 1250 yds for the larger one. (this is an average requirement, if you knit to a slightly different tension you will need more or less yarn)
The samples pictured were knitted in Elann Tarantella for the variegated blanket and Cascade Pacific for the solid colour one. Any Aran or Worsted weight yarn will be suitable but I suggest a soft easy care one designed for baby wear.
◆ Needles: 3.5 mm / US 4 and 4 mm / US 6 needles in a type/length that will hold the number of stitches comfortably.
