Candied Blanket utilises slipped stitch transitions to combine single skeins of dk weight yarn into something a little more spesh than a standard striped baby blanket.
The pattern is knit seamlessly in the round from the centre out, and is specifically designed for using 4x 100g skeins of dk weight yarn…a great stashbuster!

Whilst the blanket in appearance is fairly basic, the pattern has taken the guess work out of where to place the slip stitch transitions so they don’t overlap with the centre-out increase rounds.

Combine this baby blanket with one of the patterns from the Economy of Stash eBook, and you have a fab co-ordinated new baby gift
