A fabulous, surprisingly easy-to-knit lace baby blanket! Using a chunky merino wool/acrylic blend yarn and big needles, this blanket knits up beautifully fast.
Perfect for keeping baby warm in his/her stroller. Lightweight, despite the chunky look. Knit it in a wonderful wavy lace pattern that is a great introduction to lace knitting for any beginner (as long as you know how to do a "yarn over" and to knit 2 stitches together, you are good to go!). Contrast color border is knit on in Garter stitch and creates a great finish.
The yarn has a wonderful feel.
