Inspired by a classic nursery rhyme the Fly Away Home Baby Blanket is a combination of comforter and whimsy for a little one.

The blanket, worked in black, white, and red, will engage a child from the beginning. The blanket features several different textures of blocks and is worked in three strips to minimize seaming. The addition of the lady bug (which is stuffed!) provides a fun 3d element for baby to squish!

Knit in worsted weight super wash wool you will need approx 330yds of white yarn, 330yds of red yarn, and 110yds of black yarn.
