Most of my life I have been ambivalent about babies. I was quite surprised that turning 30 and meeting a handsome man who wants kids has changed my outlook... Now I’m having vivid daydreams about a future that includes little ones, and my fantasies have begun to materialize in knitting!
The pattern can be knit in any weight of yarn, and you may make more or less squares for a smaller or larger finished blanket. Squares measure approximately 7.5 (9, 10.5) inches square for sock (DK, aran) weight yarns. The baby-blanket sized sample is made in sock weight yarn and is 30 x 37.5 inches (20 squares).
Amounts given below are for 1 square:
sock or 4-ply: 70 yds / square
DK weight: 100 yds / square
worsted / aran: 130 yds / square
(baby blanket shown in Jamieson & Smith Jumper Weight, 20 squares, weighs 225 g, in colours: 23, 91, 121, 125, 93, 1403, 9113, 1280, 75, FC34, 132, FC41, 142). Substitute yarn suggestions below.
