Soft, cuddly, and in a nice cotton to please the baby; knit-in borders and simple, but intriguing stitch patterns to please the knitter! Machine washable cotton blend to please the mom. This blanket has it all.
An all-over lace pattern framed with a textured border makes this baby blanket a joy to knit and a joy to give. The cotton/modal blend yarn from knit picks comes in a nice range of vibrant and soft colors, is supple to knit with, and produces amazing stitch definition.
The unique stitch pattern creates subtle curvy zig zags along the length of the baby blanket. The seed stitch borders give it a very neat, finished look. Knit it in any of the gorgeous colors of the Knitpicks Shine Worsted yarn and it can suit any little boy or girl.
