Green Growth Baby Blanket
This blanket is richly textured thanks to the beautiful star stitch that covers the surface of the blanket. It is not a difficult stitch to knit and will make you feel very accomplished when you learn it!
This blanket is knitted in two parts. First the center of the blanket is worked flat (back and forth on 2 needles) then the border is worked by picking up stitches all the way around the the blanket and working in the round. Increases are worked at the corners of the blanket border to stop the edges from pulling in.
Full written instructions are given for working the star stitch.
The blanket created is a small bassinet sized blanket that measures 25 inches x 30 inches once blocked.
