Goodwood is a baby or child-sized blanket (36” x 48”, 90cm x 120cm). With bold garter stitch stripes, it’s suitable for a boy or a girl.

The blanket is constructed from 48 squares, sewn together to make the racecourse-inspired design.

You will need:
4.5mm needles
One stitch marker
Yarn needle
Approximately 1800m/2000 yds of double-knitting/light worsted weight yarn in cream, 300m/325 yds in red, and less than 200m/220 yds each of blue and green. Why not make the stripes in different colours to use up small amounts of yarn.

Skills needed:
Casting on and off
Knitting garter stitch
