More of a recipe than a pattern, this is the ideal fuss free baby blanket. Either knit in stripes to use up your stash, or done in a single classic colour, this blanket has all the advantages of working in the round, without the fiddly start on DPNs.

A central patch is knit flat to start with and then stitches picked up all the way around. After that, it is plain sailing and you can knit away until your yarn supply or your patience is exhausted - whichever comes first.

I hope you have fun with this pattern and I look forward to seeing all the combinations that you can come up with.

This pattern is provided free, however if you do download and use it I would be very grateful if you would consider making a donation to the charity Bliss. This is a UK based charity doing amazing work to help babies born too young or too small. Both of my boys were born premature and the unit in which they received such fabulous care was heavily supported by this and other charities. This is just my way of trying to give something back to them.

The link to the Just Giving donation page is:

and all proceeds will go directly to Bliss.

Thank you and happy knitting!
