This beautiful pattern is a lot simpler than it looks, requiring just basic knit and purl stitches and the ability to pick up loops and purl them together. It will make a blanket perfect to keep baby warm in a buggy, car seat or moses basket and the unisex design will make it ideal as a baby shower, birth or Christening gift as well as a hand-me-down for future babies!

Includes instructions for three sizes, to make a finished blanket measuring approx. 60x80 cm (24x32 inches), 68x88 cm (27x35 inches) or 77x96 cm (31x38 inches). You will need 200-400g of double knitting yarn (depending on the size you choose) and 4mm needles.
