This is another take on my car seat blanket featuring lace border, tiny butterflies pattern and contoured shape.
I included photographs to support various stages of this blanket project as well as written instructions and charts.
The blanket can be knitted either in one colour or in two - with contrasting border. I used James C. Brett baby DK yarn and used only one skein (pink one). Depending on the yarn brand and length per ball you will need about 300m.
I used 3mm needles however if you might used to knit DK yarn with 4mm needles. Please work to your usual gauge for DK.
You will also need tapestry needle to assemble the blanket.
I have written this pattern for your personal use only, which means you cannot resell the pattern nor blankets made using it for financial gain.
FEBRUARY 2020 UPDATE: there was a typo in written instructions to row 7 for the main part, however the chart 1 is correct. The pdf has now been amended and you should have the correct version in your library.

Like the look of this pattern but haven’t tried it as yet because I’m in the middle of moving house.
Lovely knitting pattern for baby car seat cover, however there are a couple of issues...the pattern states that the the required amount of yarn is 100 grams so i purchased two, 50gm balls, however once I started knitting the item I realised it will need at least twice as much. I am now going to have to purchase 2 more balls (including extra postage)and hope i can get the same batch number, if not will have to pull back and start again. Also, I soon found a mistake in the pattern, which I adapted, a less experienced knitter would be confused and frustrated. Shame, the yarn is gorgeous and lovely to knit with but not for the first time I wish all the good, independent wool shops locally had not closed down. There is no substitute for personal, hands on contact.
