Baby blankets are always the best gift to do if you want to offer something hand made.
Measures : 40x50cm / 16×20 in , 50x60cm / 20×24 in, 50x70cm / 20×27 in…up to 120×90 cm /47×35 in (just do it).
But my favorite is 60×60 cm /24×24 in, because I think it’s the right size from birth to 2-3 years.
Today’s project is a 100% cotton baby blanket.
Needle size 5mm / US 8
250 g Drops Paris cotton
Cast on 100 sts on needle.
Rows 1 – 6 in seeds st (Row 1 “K , P” – Row 2 K over P and P over K)
Now: 5 sts in Seeds st, 3 sts in stockinette st, repeat the design for 6 times, 3 sts in stockinette st, 5 sts in seeds sts.
Advise: put the marker after 8 sts, every 14 sts, and after the last 8 sts.
Repeat the patterns until reaching the desired length
Repeat the rows 1 – 6 and blind off.
See you soon!
