Airy and cosy are two things that rarely go together, but are the perfect combination for a hand knit baby blanket. The design of the Ballyhoura Baby Blanket is inspired by the sun-drenched Ballyhoura Hills as the day goes on and the long shadows shift. Knit flat with a simple combination of stitch variations, you can create a vibrant and cheerful blanket using three colors of Aran weight knitting yarn.
